I am in a quandry as to how to rate this. I think a 5-star rating should be exceptional in prose, subject matter/originality and more, therefore I am in the minority here with my rating.
This memoir does give one an insight as to how most daughters would react to their mothers desire to end her life on her own terms, however, I did not feel captivated by the story line as most other reviewers were, and I am not sure why, but it lacked something for me. I could easily put this down and come back to it later.
It did have some humorous moments and a dual story line reflecting on the younger years of the daughters lives which gives the reader insight into the relationships. Those interested in the Assisted Suicide Debate may enjoy this. It is still illegal in most states and the controversy continues, so looking at it from this personal perspective may attract some readers.
