When Vivien Walker left her home in the Mississippi Delta, she swore never to go back, as generations of the women in her family had. But in the spring, nine years to the day since she'd left, that's exactly what happens - Vivien returns, fleeing from a broken marriage and her lost dreams for children. What she hopes to find is solace with "Bootsie, " her dear grandmother who raised her. But instead she finds that her grandmother has died and that her estranged mother is drifting further away from her memories. Now Vivien is forced into the unexpected role of caretaker.

An enjoyable read. One of her best books. I couldn't wait to reach the end and find out what happened.

A story--stories--that will completely absorb you and expertly transport you back and forth in time. Very well written.

Good story about 5 generations of women in a Mississippi family.The pace was a bit slow but it was still well worth reading.
