Secondhand. Good condition. Wear to corners and edges. Marks on top and right foredges.
Jo narrates the story of her strong, passionate mother Willa, whose gradual slide into dementia shifts them into a new and difficult relationship.
Willa's life since arriving from Scotland as a young woman is re-created in vignettes: her spectacularly wrong choice in husband, the eccentricities of her family, the community of friends that sustain her, and her enduring capacity for joy.
And in the telling, Jo also confronts her own life choices as a woman addicted to being perpetually worried about something or other. And certainly addicted to love. Infused with abundant warmth and wry humour, The Seamstress is a memorable tale of friendship between women. (back cover)
