|Plot Summary of What We Keep|
|"As Ginny flies to see her sister and her mother--from whom she has been estranged 35 years--she reflects back on the circumstances which changes their lives forever. The reader is led into a story of housewives and dinner parties, expectations, and denial. When an attractive, flashy, single woman moves into the house next door to Ginny's, things begin to make less and less sense.
The book asks the question, what deeds are too much to forgive? Are there circumstances which exist that don't apply to the code of behavior we all silently agree to? Is it possible to let go of anger and hurt after all this time?
