From the Author
"When my mother became a widow, I became a Designated Daughter--the sibling who would try to take up the empty space that had always been filled by Dad. Instead, I found my own strong space, and learned that if you walk beside your mother when she needs you, you'll absorb her wisdom and her strength--which will carry you as far as you ever need to go."
--D. G. Fulford
