Dirty. Trash. The words have followed her through her life in her tattered, rust-stained jeans. She longs to understand her mother - who is lost and broken, driven by her addictions, by her losses –and to reconcile the memory of Mother before with Mother now. In the chaos of their one acre in the world, Alison strives for sanity, forging a path through the wreckage into the light. She is alone and must learn to stand alone, or she will be swept by the same undercurrents of self-defeat that took her mother so many years ago. During this worst of times, she discovers her own strength and determination and a powerful drive to do something better
