"Beautifully written . . . What We Keep is about ties that are buried but not broken, wounds that are dressed but never heal, and love that changes form but somehow survives . . . [Ginny Young] crosses the country for a reluctant reunion with the mother she has not seen in 35 years. Berg's tender depiction of a young girl's view of the world is uncanny and gives this story its heart. She captures perfectly what it was like to grow up in the '50s, presenting it like a long-forgotten, but still sharp photograph . . .."
