"I knew soon after my mother died that I would write about the experience..."
Immersed in this beautifully written, sensitive memoir, we travel with Alison Haynes from her family home in Australia to her mother's village in rural England.
Organising the funeral, and sorting out her mother's personal and household possessions, Alison begins to see her mother's life from fresh perspectives.
Along the way, she explores the nature of grief, the complexities of mother - daughter relationships and the factors great and small that influence our decisions and alter the courses of our lives.
