"Iris Bowen is a young Irish gardener and mother of a beloved adopted daughter, Rose.

But when she receives some worrisome results on a breast scan, the words of her husband as he was dying of cancer become hauntingly urgent. He had begged Iris to search for Rose's birth mother so that Rose would still have family if anything happened to Iris. Suddenly, Iris fears that Rose really could be left alone"-- Provided by publisher.

A story about mothers and daughters eclipsing just what mothering encompasses. Rose was given up for adoption 19 years ago, and Iris , her adopted mother wonders whether or not she should travel to America from Ireland to find Rose's natural mother now that Iris may have cancer. I had a hard time finishing this book, but in the end it was a solid story about life.
