A story about mothers and daughters eclipsing just what mothering encompasses. Rose was given up for adoption 19 years ago, and Iris , her adopted mother wonders whether or not she should travel to America from Ireland to find Rose's natural mother now that Iris may have cancer. I had a hard time finishing this book, but in the end it was a solid story about life.
