The Year My Mother Came Back
Publication Date: March 31, 2015
Thirty years after her death, Alice’s mother appears to her, seemingly
in the flesh, and continues to do so during the hardest year of
parenting Alice has had to face. As it turns out, it’s entirely possible
for the people we’ve lost to come back to us when we need them the
most. Although letting her mother back into her life is not an easy
thing, Alice navigates it with humor, intelligence, and honesty. What
she learns is that she must revisit her childhood and allow herself to
be a daughter once more in order to take care of her own girls. Alice
needs to walk in her mother’s shoes in order to understand her and
forgive her, and rediscover her love for her. In this compelling story
of mothers lost and found, Alice finds her mother and rediscovers
herself as a mother, finally able to accept her own imperfections.
A love story. A ghost story. Alice’s memoir is a contemporary tale that
reaches back through the generations. This book will speak to anybody
who has ever loved their mother, struggled with their mother, lost their
mother, or dreamt of reconciling with their mother.
