But a national treasure is losing her brilliance. Her once razor-sharp mind is showing strain; her columns have begun to wander. Concerned about Grace's health and future, Francine must step in to fill her legendary mother's shoes and somehow also live her own life, which now suddenly includes her confusing feelings for Grace's handsome doctor and new worries about tempestuous Sophie, who needs more guidance than Grace's public.
Francine struggles to save her Alzheimer's-afflicted mother's mental and physical health, while coping with her feelings of attraction for her mother's handsome doctor and worry about her young, tempestuous daughter, Sophie. Reissue.
