Read by Joyce Bean.
Years ago, Nora Bridge walked out on her marriage and left her daughters behind. She has since become a famous radio talk-show host and newspaper columnist beloved for her moral advice. Her youngest daughter, Ruby, is a struggling comedienne who uses her famous mother as fuel for her bitter, cynical humor. When Nora is injured in an accident and a glossy magazine offers her daughter a fortune to write a tell-all about her mother, Ruby returns home to take care of the woman she hasn't spoken to for almost a decade. Nora insists they retreat to San Juan Islands, to the lovely old house on the water where Ruby grew up--a place filled with childhood memories of love and joy and belonging. There, Ruby is reunited with her first love and his brother. The three of them had been best friends--almost inseparable--until the summer that Nora had left and everyone's hearts had been broken... In exploring her family's past, Ruby learns that Nora is not the woman she has hated all these years. Her mother is witty, wise, and vulnerable--and desperate to reconcile with her daughter. As the magazine deadline draws near and Ruby finishes what has begun to seem to her an act of brutal betrayal, she is forced to grow up and at last to look at her mother--and herself--through the eyes of a woman. And she must, finally, allow herself to love.
