Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
After her mother's sudden death, Karen finds herself acting as full-time caregiver to Kelli, her older sister who was born with a developmental disability. Karen starts to grasp the true aspect of Trevor's - one of Kelli's support workers - relationship with her mother. Scotiabank Giller Prize-winning author Lynn Coady delivers a creepy and wholly compelling novel about the complex relationship between mothers and daughters and sisters, women and men, and who to trust and how to trust in a world where the supposedly selfless act of caregiving can camouflage a sinister self-interest.
