Short Summary

It is fiction based on true facts that have happened in my life. It's about wives in the '70's unable to break free and having to 'put up' with circumstances (homosexuality and cancer) and keeping a 'stiff upper lip'.

A wedding, true happiness, and a final acceptance of a grandson's homosexuality and finally putting the past behind her.
