This is one of Hilma Wolitzer's earlier works, and is a stunning, beautiful read about loss. It is one of several books I have recommended to clients (I am a therapist) who are struggling to come to terms with the death of a loved one. Highly recommended.

Format: Kindle Edition
This book is listed as a novel, but I can't help wonder how much is based on reality. I find it hard to believe that the author was able to bring the reader into the experience without having experienced it herself in real life.

Having worked in a personal care home at one point, I have watched families deal with palliative care and watching their loved ones die. I cannot imagine the pain of having to leave a suffering family member behind for weeks on end while attempting to carry on one's life as if nothing is wrong. The author did an amazing job putting the reader in the position where they can experience of dealing with the realities a dying partner, especially when there are children involved.

While every grieves differently, grief in itself is the same for everyone and the author gets that message across very clearly in this compassionate love story.

Format: Kindle Edition
I'm not really sure why this book got such good reviews. The fact that a man is dying of cancer doesn't make it well written. Honestly, there was not much emotion and it was kind of boring. There were a few parts that were sad, such as when the wife is talking about how much she misses him being in bed with her. But all in all, I just read it because I hate leaving books unfinished. I didn't really care much about the characters. Not a very good book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I found this a heart wrenching story that has been beautifully crafted. The story had me from the get go and the characters were all too real and very believable. It is a poignant book about facing the death of a loved one that leaves you feeling emotional and raw. I sat for some time at several keys points of the story and contemplated the plight of the characters and compared it to my experience of the death of a loved one. The author draws you into the story so beautifully. I had not heard of Hilma Wolitzer before reading this book. I am eagerly looking forward to reading more.

More About the Author

I'm a late-blooming novelist and I mostly write about domestic situations. I truly believe that what happens in bedrooms and kitchens matters as much as what happens in boardrooms and statehouses. The novel I'm writing now is somewhat of a departure; it's a psychological mystery, although family relations are at the heart of the story.
