Mom's on the Roof
Mom's on the Roof and I can't Get Her Down
This is one of the books in the blogger contest. Check out my Christmas contest page for instructions on how to win this and many other books.
This book is the narrative of the year that the author dealt with her mother dying of cancer, her father's tragic death, and a cancer scare herself. She honestly deals with the the gritty details and emotions that go with losing a parent. She talks about how it isn't easy to lose your parent, regardless of whether it was a long process or happens unexpectedly.
This book is sadly a reality that quite a few of us will face. As we age our parents are aging too. The author gives an inside view into what it's like to be the caregiver and child left behind. And also how it affects the family members.
I received this book free of charge in exchange for a review.
