This is the story of a 7th generation Manhattanite told in vignettes throughout the beginning years of her relationship as a single mother with her daughter, Emma. Laura leads an unconventional and somewhat passive life until Emma’s honest personality inspires Laura to be more of the forward thinking person she thinks she already is. An intriguing debut novel that is as unusual as it is commonplace, which makes it all the more relatable as a reader. ~ Reviewed by Laura Knapp
