A NovelBook - 2014
A powerful drama about motherhood, the dark undercurrents that break and hold families together, and the power and pressures of love. Mary-Rose MacKinnon is a successful YA author who has made enough from her writing to semi-retire in her early 40s. She lives in a comfortable Toronto neighbourhood with her partner and their two young children trying valiantly and often hilariously to balance her creative pursuits with domestic demands. As a child, Mary-Rose suffered from an illness, long since cured and "filed separately" - in her mind. But as her frustrations mount, she experiences a flare-up of forgotten symptoms.
