"Good onset bodes good end." Spenser. "Well?" said Ralph. "Well?" said Sylvia. "Well?" said Molly. Then they all three stood and looked at each other. Each had his or her own opinion on the subject which was uppermost in their minds, but each was equally reluctant to express it, till that of the others had been got at. So each of the three said "Well?" to the other two, and stood waiting, as if they were playing the old game of "Who speaks first?" It got tiresome, however, after a bit, and Molly, whose patience was the most quickly exhausted, at last threw caution and dignity to the winds.

New in paperback! From the events coordinator of San Francisco's acclaimed Book Passage comes a provocative memoir that explores the complex emotional landscape of a child abandoned by her mother

One summer, Melissa Cistaro's mother drove off without a word. Devastated, she and her brothers were left to pick up the pieces, wondering why their mother abandoned them. Decades later, Melissa finds herself at her dying mother's side, with just days to find out what happened that summer and confront the fear she could do the same to her own children. She never expects to stumble on a cache of letters her mother wrote but never sent, which could hold the answers she seeks.
