The vignettes are laid out in chronological order, and each one of them weaves a story about family members and imparts important lessons learned along the way. The Devil Wears Prada meets Tuesdays with Morrie in this heartfelt, humorous journey of a daughter coming to terms with her young mother's mortality, the strength she found in the example her mother set, and the hope they discovered together in the ladies' dressing room.
Readers will laugh through their tears and identify with the bond that every daughter has with her mother, and each mother with her daughter too. They will be transported to the dressy shoe floor at Neiman Marcus, the Trish McEvoy makeup counter at Henri Bendel's, and then back to the chemotherapy treatment room at Jefferson University Hospital. Lesser's story reminds us that it is the little moments that often hold the most meaning and memory.
