Book Review -
To Valerie. I applaud you on another warm and heart-felt book. You not only delivered on your promise to continue your journey towards understanding this difficult part of your life but you have given a positive direction on how others who have a similar need might begin to heal.
I would have preferred that the book was longer but I was happy to find that you included the letters from those that love you and your mother. Without love and support, none of us can make it through the day-to-day craziness that the world throws at us.
I agree that a person cannot properly understand your plight unless they have gone through that kind of loss. My mother passed of complications from diabetes back in 1993. What she and I went through together still seems like yesterday but sharing my pain with others and the passage of time has helped to ease the pain. Continue to help others with what you have learned and you will receive blessing and understanding back ten-fold. Just as you show in your book, it all comes from love. Thank you for the experience.
I enjoy the mystery that writing a good story offers. Effective writing has occurred when the reader is forced to quickly look over their shoulder.
