Every night when I start to read this book, I only last for a few pages before my medicine kicks in.  I’ve just been so tired since… “YOU KNOW”  (I said I wouldn’t talk about it anymore.)


Synopsis from Barnes & Noble

Gabriella always loved the picture of her mother kneeling in front of a bed of roses, smiling, beautiful and impossibly happy. But then she learns that her late mother hated gardening; that she had never wanted the house in the Hollywood hills, the successful movie producer husband, and possibly, her only daughter. When Gabriella discovers a journal–a book that begins as a new mother’s letters to her baby girl, but becomes a secret diary–the final entry leaves one question unanswered: the night her mother died, was she returning to Colombia to end an affair, or was she abandoning her family for good?
