I was deeply moved by Ms. Witchel's revealing and personal story of her relationships with her sister and her mother, as well as her extended family. Only when an author shares her own deep emotions can one be moved by books such as these. I have become a HUGE new fan and can't wait for her next book. Her writing is so good, I'll have to find her earlier pieces of fiction too. Real memoirs are my favorite genre, and these are among the best I have found.

This is not a memoir of her mother's dementia, as stated.  It is unorganized memories of her life.  Truly disappointing.

Disappointed--did not learn much of anything but a few good recipes. The author loved to talk about herself more than anyone else.
