LET'S KEEP IN TOUCHGet the week's posts conveniently delivered to your inbox first thing Sunday morning. In part as a personal discipline as well as a need to better organize my reflections on books I have read, I will be sharing periodic book reviews. As Will sits with his mother during her chemotherapy treatments they discuss books they are reading or want to read.

Part memoir, part book review, and part tribute, Schwalbe invites the reader to walk alongside his devotion and care to his mother Mary Ann Schwalbe.
It occurs to him that the waiting rooms and treatment rooms are transformed into their own book club with a membership of just two.


While this is no great literary achievement, it is a good book worth reading, discussing, and, like life itself, sharing.
Thank goodness for books because they give us something to talk about and give us something to think about. Each chapter is titled after a book title and in a creative way serves as the narrative arch for that section. Yes, it what you think, but do not let the title mislead you that this book is a sad, morbid tale. The title of the book as well as the cancer already tells us how this will end, but this is hardly a somber story. Reading this book reacquainted me with good books I have enjoyed as well as introduced me to some I need to read. It is filled with hope, joy, and love between a son and his mother and we are given the opportunity to share with them in their journey.


It is a loving and at times provocative reflection on life, friendship, good books, living well and dying well. The list of books they discuss or he mentions is worth the price of the book (even though my copy was donated to me!).
More than just a good books list, it is a gracious journey in which we readers are privileged to share a part.
