Booklist Review

Flora always vowed to be a better mother to her children than her own mother had been to her. While growing up, Flora was teased because other children weren't used to the concept of a career mom; eventually, she would rather be called an orphan than admit to her mother's lack of parental involvement. Now with grown children of her own and still happily married, Flora looks upon her life as ideal; the children are embarking on their own careers, and when they occasionally flop at her house for comfort, it fills her heart with happiness. So no one is more surprised than Flora herself when her world begins to fall apart, thus beginning a new chapter of self-discovery. As Flora deals with the changes in her life, her relationship with her children blossoms, leading the way for her to mend the bond with her own mother. Flora's rebirth is inspiring as she comes of age in her middle years in a charming English setting. A fine, satisfying story. --Mary Frances Wilkens
