      Dear Connie--

      Thanks so much for posting. I've actually been surprised by how many readers have responded to say that they, too, were raised by grandparents. I imagine that as both a sad and wonderful thing--wonderful because you are deeply loved and cared for, and sad because someone is always sort of missing in your life. As you keep reading Firefly, you'll see that Tully was profoundly affected by her mother's abandonment of her; in fact, it really is the cornerstone of her personality. It created a hole in her that she is forever trying to fill. It takes a long time for her to understand that SHE wasn't rejected by her mother; her mother simply couldn't be a parent. Sadly, this kind of thing happens. And ultimately, we have to accept that our folks are simply human, sometimes flawed, and go on to become our best selves anyway. That's Tully's path.

      I hope you enjoy the book--

      my best,
