Format: Paperback
I am the eldest of 6 siblings. Our mother died from emphysema resulting from her smoking all of her life. I could relate to the stories told by the siblings of the mothers in this book. I think the book is very well written and will recommend it to anyone that has smokers in their family. I am giving copies of this book to my family members for Christmas...
