I am an accidental author. WHEN ALL THAT'S LEFT OF ME IS LOVE, an account of my last year with my terminally ill and eternally wonderful mother, essentially wrote itself in the weeks of intense grief following her death in September 2009. Chapters poured out of me at all hours of the day and night, flowing directly from a broken heart to a blank page. I finished the manuscript by mid-December, in time to give it to my father for Christmas, his first without his wife and sweetheart of 52 years. It is a story I never intended or expected to tell, but now that it's written, I am happy to keep my mother's legacy of love and her joyful, generous spirit alive through its pages.

The Hound of Death by Agatha Christie
“A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity. It dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.

“All that we know about those we have loved and lost is that they would wish us to remember them with a more intensified realization of their reality. What is essential does not die but clarifies. The highest tribute to the dead is not grief but gratitude.”
Thornton Wilder

You're welcome. When I first tried to accept, I was sent to a page that required me to invite you. (I am not very technologically savvy, as you can guess!) So I sent you an invitation with a note before figuring out how to get back to your invitation page. In my note I responded to your request for a few recommendations; hope you haven't read them yet. A few more favorites of mine that just came to mind: GILEAD, THE GOOD EARTH, THE JOY LUCK CLUB. Would love for you to read my memoir (WHEN ALL THAT'S LEFT OF ME IS LOVE) if you enjoy that kind of book! It has won awards, and reader reactions testify to the fact that it's a story that really moves people. Thanks!


Pamela Hey Linda...Thanks for accepting my friend request.
