Never Coming Back by Alison McGhee. Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Clara left her home in the Adirondack Mountains because her strong-willed mother. Tamar wanted her to experience life outside their small, insular town. Ten years on, Clara is a successful writer when she discovers she needs to go home. Her mother is beginning to forget things and it appears she may be suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease. Clara knows that her mother had a larger reason for wanting her daughter to leave than just to experience life in the big city, but there’s more to it than that.  And Clara’s frustration grows knowing that her mother is unable to answer her questions. What secrets is she hiding from her daughter, and equally terrifying, does Clara face a similar diagnosis when she gets older? This is a mystery, but even more, a portrait of a mother and daughter trying to find a way to know each other before they have to say goodbye
