Picking up the PiecesBook - 1999
Kate is in her fifties, recently widowed, and coping with the difficulties -- and occasional pleasures -- of flying solo. Helped and hindered in equal measures by her delightful but wicked old mother-in-law Cicely, she finds new strengths and must face undiscovered weaknesses. But when her daughter is estranged by her husband, Kate finds herself forced into a role she cannot assume, and realizes it is time to step outside her family's preconceived notions. What follows is a delightful story of the relationships and unspoken power between four generations of women.
