Letting Go The four Tillerman children finally have a home at their grandmother's rundown farm on the Maryland shore. It's what Dicey has dreamed of for her three younger siblings, but after watching over the others for so long, it's hard to let go. Who is Dicey, if she's no longer the caretaker for her family? Dicey finds herself in new friends, in a growing relationship with her grandmother, and in the satisfaction of refinishing the old boat she found in the barn. Then, as Dicey experiences the trials and pleasures of making a new life, the past comes back with devastating force, and Dicey learns just how necessary -- and painful -- letting go can be.

Dicey's song was an incredible book about estranged relationships and the healing thereof. Dicey's and her brothers and sister are abandoned by their mother and so wind up at their mother's mother's house, the grandmothers. The grandmother had been widowed for quite awhile when the children arrived, and having estranged her daughter, found a way to undo the damage she had done to her daughter by taking in and raising her daughter's children. The grandmother's love comes in the shape of responsibilities, chores, and overall family pitching in but in doing so imparts infinite wisdom to Dicey and siblings. Dicey also meets people in her mom's home town that knew her mother when she was young. Very well written with unique perspective on inter-family social situations.
