Her mother's death at seventy-six-- after they hadn't spoken at all in several years-- sent Brown on a journey of exploration, guilt and trauma, rage and betrayal, and forgiveness. She also shares interviews with others who are estranged, as well as the most recent research on this topic. -- adapted from jacket"@en ;
