A memoir of her mother written after reading her mother's diaries and letters years following her death. Reichl has a much deeper understanding of her mother’s generation, her struggles as an educated ambitious woman whom everyone said should be fulfilled as a wife and mother.
After regaling us in her funny 'Tender at the Bone' about her mother who could not cook and had little sense about food, Reichl’s take here has a depth of understanding for her mother quite different.
