It is a poignant and compellingly universal book about family, love, and the relationship between the ideal and the real. Using the poetry of William Wordsworth as a touchstone, Gilman probes the complexity of our expectations and hopes for our children, our families, and ourselves, and affirms that we are all capable of re-imagining our lives and finding joy in the most unexpected circumstances.
