Gabrielle Carey’s mother had always been pedantically punctual and organised. So when she begins to forget where she put her purse — and even where she put her dentures — Gabrielle knows something is wrong. Scans reveal a brain tumour and doctors advise its urgent removal. Biding the dreadful passing of time in doctors’ waiting rooms, Gabrielle begins to realise how much her mother has left untold‚ how many questions she still wants to ask her‚ and how little time there is left for answers.
