Summary
Successful novelist Helen Ames is thrust into coping with the details of everyday life when her husband dies suddenly. Their accountant calls with the distressing news that Dan withdrew a huge sum of money from their shared account shortly before his death. What could he have done with their savings?
Critique
An engaging story of the bonds between husbands and wives, and mothers and daughters. Middle-aged Helen has needed to take responsibility for her own life for a long time. Dan's death and her daughter's reaction to it push Helen to become a much stronger and more confident woman. Highly recommend.
