Winterbottom disappears, Phoebe copes with her sadness in ways that may seem unexpected.
For one, she doubles down on the dietary restrictions imposed by her mom in the first place. She goes into an extensive explanation of why each of the dishes is unhealthy, refusing to eat them all. Sharon Creech did such an amazing job of illustrating this! On the episode, Katharine and I talk briefly about some of the more vague references to mental health in Walk Two Moons.

There is, however, one more explicit reference to this subject that Katharine and I did not get to mention on mic. Ultimately, we learn that his mother is a patient at a mental health facility. Sal even goes with Ben to visit her! I lost my own grandmother very suddenly back in September, and when Sal experiences a similarly unexpected tragedy while on the road with her grandparents, it broke my heart into a million little pieces.

The mystery of Phoebe's more conventional mother's disappearance and its effects on her family and eventual explanation unfold as the journey, with its own offbeat incidents, proceeds; meanwhile, in Sal's intricate narrative, the tragic events surrounding her mother's flight are also gradually revealed.
After Sal fell from a tree, her mother carried her back to the house; soon after, she bore a stillborn child.
Walk Two Moons
Slowly, the love between Sal's parents, her mother's inconsolable grief, and Sal's life since her departure emerge; last to surface are the painful facts that Sal has been most reluctant to face. Creech, an American who has published novels in Britain, fashions characters with humor and sensitivity, but Sal's poignant story would have been stronger without quite so many remarkable coincidences or such a tidy sum of epiphanies at the end.
Still, its revelations make a fine yarn. There was a problem adding your email address. Please try again.
