After her father's extended illness and death, ten-year-old
Kathleen Mackey captured her experience of loss in a journal
including original poetry and the initial pages of an
autobiography. After she rediscovers the forgotten childhood
journal twenty-five years later, the story continues as the little
girl matures into a woman determined to discover life's happiness
in spite of her loss.
Kathleen intends for her childhood memories to remain safely
tucked in dusty boxes in her mother's attic, but her mother has
different ideas. She encourages Kathleen to open the chest that
holds restless reminders of a carefree youth that was suddenly
shattered by death, and Kathleen finds herself overwhelmed with the
same confusion and frustration that had haunted her for years after
her father died. As she reflects on the impact of her father's
death in everyday events and casual conversations and sets out to
once again find joy and meaning in her life, Kathleen weaves
original poetry into her narrative, painting a tender portrait of a
child's journey to adulthood.
