When an MRI reveals that Mimi Malloy’s brain is filled with black spots --- areas of atrophy, her doctor says --- the prospect of living out her days in an “Old Timer’s facility” starts to look like more than just an idea at the top of her eldest daughter’s to-do list. Yet as Mimi prepares to take a stand, she stumbles upon an old pendant, and her memory starts to return --- specifically, recollections of a shockingly painful childhood, her long-lost sister, and the wicked stepmother she swore to forget.
