Four years have passed since the sudden death of the author’s mother. He has never allowed himself closure due to a misstep in her final moments. An insomniac, he finds himself face to face with a female mouse late one night and this tale begins. Each encounter slowly blurs reality as he comes to believe the mouse is his deceased Mom. Intermingled are a series of flashback childhood stories, where the layers are peeled away allowing the reader to come to know both the author and his Mom and the special relationship these two shared. As you join in on the journey you will laugh and cry with this family. Can the mouse allow the author to fix his earlier mistake and finally have peace?
