One might expect the author’s daunting experience to flood the story with sadness. But in her deft hands, light streams through the window of her life. I found myself laughing out loud at the bathroom scene in a bank, at the unauthorized toast parties, and many other exceptionally funny scenes.
There is also information so shocking that one cannot help but be enraged by a medical system that hid horrific events. In spite of these harrowing moments, however, the seed of this story blooms within the transmission of letters between this family and another (I don’t want to give away what’s going on with these communique, so forgive the mysterious lapse of information).
The author writes with a light touch, encasing a tragic event within rainbow-like parameters, which only the most accomplished writer could deliver with pathos, humor and, above all, joy. This may be the finest memoir I’ve ever read.

This book powerfully and emotionally took me through love, loss, and deliverance in breathtaking currents. I was totally caught up in each and every page. As a hospice professional, I found myself noting of many useful, practical tips I plan to use with nurses, doctors, chaplains and social workers who provide compassionate care.
