Mailbox Monday -- April 18th


The reason why I love Mondays -- Mailbox Monday hosted this month by Passages to the Past. This past week was a light one with only one book received:

1) Imperfect Endings by Zoe Fitzgerald Carter. Publisher's Summary. Zoe Carter's busy life on the West Coast with her husband and daughters takes an unexpected detour when her glamorous, independent-minded mother, Margaret, tired of living with Parkinson's disease, decides she wants to "end things." As Zoe and her sisters negotiate over whether or not they should support Margaret's choice and who should be there at the end, their discussions stir up old alliances and animosities, along with memories of a childhood dominated by their elegant mother and philandering father. Capturing the stresses and the joys of the "sandwich generation" while bringing a provocative new perspective to the assisted suicide debate, Imperfect Endings is the uplifting story of a woman determined to die on her own terms and the family who has to learn to let her go.


Thanks to Simon and Schuster!

  10. I have a feeling this book can be a tear jerker, but it's precisely these kinds of books that make readers think and wonder.

    Enjoy your book! =)
