But his father deteriorates in this new isolation, leaving Sebby to come to terms with his mother's death alone. Desperate for comfort and guidance, he reaches out to a favorite teacher back home in letters that reveal his private thoughts and fears as he struggles to understand his mother - both her life and her death - and is led to wonder if he, too, is meant to share her fate."--Jacket."@en ;
