Publisher Description

“One of the most haunting stories I have ever read about the price we pay for the secrets we keep” from the award-winning author of How Will I Know You? (Julia Glass, national bestselling author).
 
The Gretchen Question recounts a day in the life of Roberta Chase, who does not have much time left to make peace with her son ,who’s punishing her for withholding his father’s true identity from him. A single mother torn between protecting her only child or revealing herself fully to the people she loves most, Roberta finds herself at war with conflicting loyalties, increasing betrayal by her own body, the confused love she feels for her oldest friend, and a trauma from her past that casts a deep and possibly permanent shadow not only over her own life, but over the legacy she will bestow upon her son. Portraying the most intense and shameful moments of motherhood, and the things we leave unsaid even to those we want most to hear them, The Gretchen Question is a celebration of one woman’s private reckoning with the source of her life’s most profound pain―as well as its greatest pleasure.
