This is the true story of a mother who rose to the challenges of surviving the Second World War with family intact, lived an intensely passionate and deeply troubled personal life afterward, endured the perils of cultural displacement, and suffered the loss of her identity as she drifted toward an agonizingly slow death from an affliction that stole her mind. It is also the story of her bemused family members, all trying to demystify the woman they thought they knew, together producing a fascinating kaleidoscopic picture of a mystery they cannot unravel. Finally, it is the author's own story-the aging son reflecting on the enigmas of identity, family myths, dying, and death. These stories are set in Glasgow and Toronto.
