From the very first sentence, this story grabbed me and held me till the end. I simply couldn't put it down and finished it in a day! Mother/daughter relationships, perhaps the most complex of all inter-personal interactions, always make for engaging if not emotionally charged storytelling and this tale is no different. Life, death, love, hate, guilt and remorse -- the very core of human emotional interaction are the underlying and core elements of this well-written book.

Infamous photographer Ruth Dunne is dying from cancer yet hopes to put together one last book as a testimony of her work. Her youngest daughter Clara, the object of much of the sensational pictures, fled Manhattan and her mom for the serene quiet of Maine where she has lived for fourteen years in seclusion with her spouse Jonathan and their daughter Samantha, who is unaware that her maternal grandmother is alive or that her mom was the ¿star¿. When Clara¿s sister Robin informs her that mom is dying, she would like to reconcile with Ruth before dies, but has so much anger over those pictures of her as a naked child that Ruth insists were art, but Clara feels they were exploitation and abuse.-------------- Forced to tell the truth to Sam, the family travels to New York to see Ruth. At the MoMA, Sam sees some of her grandmother¿s work and believes they are fine. Robin who has always felt left out and alone and Clara bond as adult sisters something they could not do as children. Meanwhile as Ruth nears death she begs Clara to forgive her as she never intended to harm her with her art. While her family wants a reconciliation, Clara has doubts as exploitation remains in the forefront of her mind.----------------------- This is an interesting family drama as each of the key players come across as unique individuals with issues and concerns. The story line focuses mostly on the dysfunctional relationship between Ruth and Clara, but also provides some insight to the lack of rapport between sisters, spouses, and mother and daughter. Readers will know how everyone feels as no one holds back their emotions. Although the climax seems too forgiving, fans will enjoy this fine character driven tale.------------------- Harriet Klausner

Great book, unfortunately I listen to the audio version and the last CD was damaged and Barnes and Noble would not replace so I do not know how the book ended.
