One reviewer describes the story as a "warmly candid memoir of navigating family, aging, and death."  The writer's debut memoir tells of a daughter's struggle as she learned to cope with the houseful of mementos and memories her parents left after their deaths. Going through her parents possessions, she realized that she never really knew her free spirited, war bride mother.
