Parents often try to shield their children from the demons that color their lives, but in many cases, it is only a temporary respite. Hallie Greaves recalls that her mother spent most of her life shut away in her bedroom. Now as she comes back to her childhood home, thinking she can help draw her mother out to a fuller life, she finds that her own concerns and fears of failure must be confronted as well. Norma Lang narrates in an even and introspective tone. Her quiet and steady examination of the corners of Hallie's past and present is appropriately low-key and well tempered. J.E.M.
