Gayle's story alternates between "Then," when her mother's sudden death upended Jess's life, and "Now," as she tackles the emotional task of emptying her mother's home. Witney White gives Jess a British accent while voicing her grief as she struggles to find a home for possessions too precious to toss. Frustration comes through as Jess begins to re-evaluate her choices and dreams in life. White delivers tones of judgment and superiority as longtime companion Guy belittles Jess's dreams and ambition. Lifelong friend Luce bubbles with enthusiasm, telling Jess of a place where she can save some of those precious possessions. White's careful use of accents, varying tempos, and humor brings even minor characters to life in this engaging examination of grief, memory, and moving on.
