"Intimacy has always eluded twenty-seven-year-old Maggie Krause--despite being brought up by married parents, models of domestic bliss--until, that is, Lucia came into her life. But when Maggie's mom Iris dies in a car crash, Maggie returns home only to discover a withdrawn dad, an angry brother, and, along with Iris's will, five sealed envelopes, each addressed to a mysterious man she's never heard of. In an effort to run from her own grief and discover the truth about Iris--who made no secret of her discomfort with her daughter's sexuality--Maggie embarks on a road trip, determined to hand-deliver the letters and find out what these men meant to her mother"--Publisher's description.

Boring. Whiny, juvenile main character.

As much as I wanted to love this book, I couldn't. It felt the beginning took forever to get started and then the last half was rushed. I hated the main character. Only finished the book to find out the end. The topics are interesting and can view different perspectives.

When Maggie discovers 5 letters tucked into her mother’s will, she sets off on a journey with her new girlfriend to hand deliver the letters to the men to whom the letters were addressed. She’s had a challenging relationship with her mom because her mom couldn’t accept Maggie’s sexuality. Maggie discovers she knew little about either her mother or father. Her mom is not only flawed, but she emerges from this search as a human with complex emotions and desires. Great storytelling.
