On the anniversary of her mother's death, Rhonda receives a mysterious package in the mail. And it's from her deceased mother! As she tries to figure out how this is possible, Rhonda turns to the people around her, reconnects with her brother and makes new friends. While the package from her mother wasn't what she expected, Rhonda realizes it's a bigger gift than she ever imagined.

CM: Canadian Review of Materials
"Well written and entertaining. It is an amusing story about a family that doesn't behave like families should. Highly Recommended."
