Note: I let my thirteen year old read this but not all parents will feel comfortable with topics involving teen pregnancy/unwed mother.

Suzanne left home at seventeen years old—pregnant and alone. The plan was for her to go away, give birth and then return home to her family. That was twenty years ago. Without the support of her family, Suzanne has raised her daughter on her own.
With no real communication from her family, Suzanne is surprised at sudden correspondence from her brother. After all of this time apart it seems the family needs Suzanne, now a registered nurse, to come home and care for her ailing mother.
