What would you do if you gave up your youth to take care of family members with the expectation that you yourself would be taken care of when they passed..... only to find out that's not the truth and you are on your own?
This is what has happened to Teensie. She passed up chances of love and independence for 15 years to take care of her father only to find out not only did he not leave her the house like he stated he would, he also left her little money.
Her sister offers to let her move in with them - to take care of the children. But Teensie is done taking care of others, she decides to take her life into her own hands and break free of the family restraints.
This is the story of Teensie unexpectedly facing a brand new life and independence, much later than planned. It's a nicely written book, the characters take on a life of their own, Teensie is very likable - and you find yourself rooting for her to stand firm with her decisions and not let the family sway her.
