Summary
"The Hardens--Beverly, a proper Dallas lady; Thad, a young naval officer; and their five lively children--moved a lot. Using the philosophy of ikebana learned by Beverly in Yokohama as a starting point, Marcia Gay Harden intertwines the seasons of her mother?s life with her own journey from precocious young girl to Oscar-winning actress. With razor-sharp wit and emotional honesty, Marcia captures the joys and losses of life even as her precious mother gracefully strives to maintain her identity while coming to grips with Alzheimer?s disease."--Back cover
