Abstract:

"[...] Pat Jasper explores the revelation of her younger sister's childhood abuse and the way it altered the flow of her life. The disclosure, when both were adults, made her realize that the past didn't happen the way she remembered, that her childhood memories were invalid and had to be "revised" in light of this new development. It is, at heart, a book about memory: its vagaries, inconsistencies, and distortions, the way we tailor our recollections to suit our current needs, the way the "background music" of the past continues to orchestrate the present"--Back cover.
