Summary: Lil and Frank married young, started a family, and have recently retired to North Carolina. Determined to leave a history behind for their grown kids, Lil sifts through letters and diary entries, uncovering family stories—and revealing more secrets than Frank wants their children to know. Empathetic and profound, this novel from master storyteller Jill McCorkle deconstructs and reconstructs what it means to be a father or a mother, and to be a child trying to know your parents, trying to make sense of the hieroglyphics of history and memory.
