Sallee Mackey describes her mother Ginny: “My mother was a beautiful woman and we all knew it; my mother most of all. She wore her long golden hair up in a loose bun, or in a braid wrapped around her head for parties. Her features were delicate. She always wore jewelry that shimmered and jingled when she moved.”
Ginny Mackey was far from the perfect mother and wife. She’s spoiled. She’s self-centered. You could even say mean. In Mary Morony’s book Apron Strings, Ginny drinks too much, cares too little, and loses her temper more than she should. But Ginny has a past, and many things she still doesn’t understand about it.
