Hard to write an objective review - Judith Paterson (or Judy Jones as she was then) was one of my English professors in college at Auburn University Montgomery. This is a book about her childhood and her relationship with her alcoholic mother. It is very sad - occasionally awkward in trying to express such deep emotions - but utterly honest in its portrayal of a daughter's love for her mother and the search in all the years sense for the meaning (or mystery) of it all.

For anyone who grew up in Montgomery, it is also a wonderful visit to places long familiar or long gone. These are some of the best passages in the book. ( )
