Daphne is raising her toddler daughter Honey alone in San Francisco, working in an international institute at a University and dealing with the green card limbo of her Turkish husband. A tragedy on a trip she set up and the pressure of single parenting cause her to pack her car and her toddler and move abruptly to the California high desert, where she owns a mobile home inherited from her mother and her grandparents. She is seeking clarity, but over the next 10 days she drinks too much, wanders aimlessly around the town, and befriends an nonagenarian on a pilgrimage to a once happy place. Raw and emotional, this debut novel explores themes of motherhood, grief, and the difficulties of multi-cultural marriage.
