From the time she was a little girl, shuttled from one foster home to another, Claudia had longed for a family of her own. So when she married Sam, her dream seems to have come true: not only has she found a devoted husband, but at last she has a loving mother, Eleanor, Sam's mother. But the portrait of her perfect family begins to fracture and split as Eleanor - and everyone around her - descends into the nightmare of Alzheimer's. As agonizing year follows agonizing year, Claudia bears the brunt of Eleanor's increasing dementia: her violent eruptions, speechlessness, incontinence, even suicide attempts. But when Eleanor is discovered dead with a collection of empty pill bottles beside her bed, the unthinkable seems possible, and Claudia is charged with murder.
