Publisher's Summary

When the two grown daughters of Elizabeth Marshall discover an old diary of their mother's in the attic, it comes as a shock to learn that the true love of Elizabeth's life was not their father. But is all as it seems?

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.

Good Listen

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! :)

Great book

It's amazing the way the author was able to tell the story of their parents' love life based reading their mother's dairy.
