This book is relatable, and that is a big thing. I saw my personal and family experience with our mother in these pages. I can connect to all the topics, but most importantly my “aha” moment was the historic relationship discussion and my thoughts were, “If only we had known this earlier…” I also found the reflections a great asset for pondering what was discussed and saw how writing down thoughts and experiences can be cathartic.
