When You Go AwayLarge Print - 2004
For Peri MacKenzie, the breaking point comes a few months after her husband leaves her and their three children, robbing her of all financial and emotional support. While thirteen-year-old Carly does her best to help her mother with chores and the care of her severely disabled little sister, fifteen-year-old Ryan is too resentful to cooperate. It's the children's estranged grandfather -- determined to make up for his own parenting failures -- who steps into the breach when Peri disappears. And it's Peri's return with a fierce determination to win back the right to be a good mother that begins to heal them all.
