That's the mystery the two daughters must unravel as they stay up late reading the words penned by Elizabeth so long ago. Their mother can't provide the answers: After a massive stroke, she lies mute and near death in a nursing home. Only the pages of her diary can provide clues to what really happened.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit. It didn't keep me glued to my car in the parking lot to finish a chapter, but it was a good listen. I would recommend it, just REALLY pay attention to the opening paragraph. I wasn't really paying attention at first and through the whole book I was thinking I should reverse and start over....pay attention to that opening part! :)
It's amazing the way the author was able to tell the story of their parents' love life based reading their mother's dairy.
