Has Anyone Here Seen Larry?

by Dierdre Purcell

A family drama between rival daughters that reveals a mother’s passion…

Larry is an 87-year-old widow. Old and frail, she remembers her youth as if it were yesterday and longs for her past vigor. Larry lives with her daughters.

Martha, the “good” daughter, waits on her mother’s every whim. Mary has a career, takes exotic vacations and is mother’s favorite, though she never lifts a finger to help. Something has to give. One embarrassing evening, Father Jimmy comes to supper, and pent up feelings emerge. High drama follows, and Larry is nowhere to be found.

The Gemma Open Door Series features storytelling by best-selling authors and important voices for new readers. A story doesn’t have to be big to change our world.
