The first part of this book was a little frustrating & annoying. It's a memoir written as a tribute to the author's mother, but the dialogue was so sappy & overly flowery & exaggerated, it was hard to take it seriously. And the last half is after her mother contracts MS and about the slow deterioration, of her mother and the family. MAJOR tearjerker. I just ran out of Kleenex!
