In the wake of her mother's escalating loss of memory and independence, Grant confronts her sense of having lost her mother and is inspired by the opportunity to explore her heritage and family history and fears for the future. Patricia Gallimore captures the roller-coaster ride through despair and hope, a valiant attempt at patience and some semblance of humor. Gallimore presents Grant's mother as a woman who is careful about how she puts herself forward, but whose awareness and fear of her mental deterioration are poignant and palpable. By not overplaying the contrast in emotional response between daughter and mother, Gallimore lets the intensity underlying the story prevail.
