A short book that can be finished in a single sitting, Lift is a letter from Kelly to her daughters. In this book she describes the unique and special love that exists between parents and children. Filled with both funny and poignant stories of her childhood as well as her children, Kelly perfectly captures the amazing experience of parenthood. There were so many times when I wanted to shout 'Yes! That's exactly how I feel.' Whether it's convincing her single friend that even the difficulty of parenting alone is worth the reward of having a child to describing the vulnerability all parents feel when a child is ill, she captures the essence of being a parent. Listening to a book like this makes me wish that I could express these emotions to my own children.

Hi Carmen,

I've added it to your list (I also added her other memoir - The Middle Place and some other titles I thought you would enjoy).

Take care,
