But in her heart she had wanted to write a book but her ex husband shot that down and she never finished it. He harassed her so much the divorce settlement was a joke. Van was Arden’s boss and liked to take credit for Arden’ work. Lauren was Arden’s daughter was Lauren and she was just finishing up a year of college. She wanted to be an artist and she was really good originally how she got in college but was trying to be practical for her mom’s sake and was going for a business degree as she had found out how her father had left her mom in a financial mess and this way she could help her mom crawl out of debt. Maybe then when that was accomplished she could paint. Lauren loved her grandmother dearly even though her Mom had a strained relationship with her mom Lolly.  Lauren talks her mom into going up to see her grandma for Memorial day weekend. While there Arden learns her mom has MCI  which centers on memory loss and possibly dementia in the end. Arden just doesn’t know what to do.

I loved this story it was really good. A story of three generations of women and their struggles with the realities of life. I loved the characters and all the ins and outs they go through. I recommend.

I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
