The key opens a box, unlocks the past and defines the future.

On her fourteenth birthday in 1775, Anna Stickney received a precious gift, a handmade journal. A place to keep her secrets and write her wishes. As the country sought independence, Anna fought battles of her own, fell in love, and faced heart break all of which she recorded in tiny script. Someday she thought she would share the contents with her daughter. But Anna waited for another tomorrow to come…

After her mother died, Lucy Wilson found a locked box. Unable to locate the key in the Massachusetts home Lucy shared with her husband and little sister, the box sat keeping its secrets safely locked inside.

Hours before Lucy’s life changes forever, she locates the missing key. No longer free to explore the box all at once, Lucy savors the contents in the few quiet moments she can snatch. Anna’s words burden, sooth, and free Lucy as she comes to know the woman she called Mama.

    I love this cover. This is a very short book and stands on its own but it would probably be better to read Waking Lucy first. (I didn’t).

    Lucy gets the chance to read a hidden diary from her mother and in so doing learns who her mother really was and begins to understand the sacrifices her mother made for her. Anna had a difficult life (Lucy is the product of rape and then Anna marries into an abusive situation) and Lucy knows that but she doesn’t have the whole picture. I believe that none of us have the whole picture of our parents so it would be interesting to have the chance to see more clearly. By reading the diary, Lucy begins to see how much her mother loved her and protected her even when it didn’t feel like she was. Lucy gains a greater appreciation for her mother and I think also for her husband.

    There is nothing graphic in the book but it tells us that Anne and her sister were raped and left for dead and it tells us there was verbal, emotional and physical abuse from her husband. It is all told in brief statements in the diary. There is also a little innuendo between Lucy and her husband.
