Most days it’s manageable. No more than a quiet wondering around the edges of her mind.
What has become of the baby she left behind?
Smiling through the pain and suffering in silence, Leslie Laudon marches forward. Embracing the life skillfully designed by her husband, Paul. Living right could be penance for an impossible choice she made. Dutiful and anchoring, Leslie pours herself into her other children. Nurturing them through infancy, protecting them as toddlers, guiding them as teens.
As her youngest child heads off to college with her suitcases and coordinating dorm room accessories, so goes Leslie’s identity. The chaotic life of a busy working mother threatens to become dangerously quiet. Quiet enough to hear the voices she’s tried to silence for decades.
