“One day as 12-year-old Mary walks home from school, she meets a mysterious woman who seems to appear out of nowhere. The woman looks young, but seems old, and her name is Tansey, which, as it happens, is the name of Mary's long-dead great-grandmother. Tansey says she has a message for Mary's granny. And so, impossibly, four generations of women embark on a midnight road trip to revisit the farm that made them who they are. Doyle's delightful story is charming, witty, and poignant, a surprisingly fresh generational tale that mothers and daughters will want to share!”
