This book was a very insightful exploration of what happens when a young mom picks up and leaves her children "without a backward glance". It describes how it impacts their lives forever. Society is not shocked when men do this but it's not at all "acceptable" for mothers. As a mother, I cant imagine doing this to my children and so the book brought out emotions in me ranging from sad to anger and many in between.
