The story revolves around an emotionally dysfunctional family. Walter’s controlling and demanding attitude has alienated his three children and he finds himself alone to deal with his ailing wife. The eldest son, Henrik, as rigid and judgemental as the father, focuses solely on boosting his successful career, and only contacts his elderly parents when his business allows curt phone calls and cameo appearances to put them in line. Hanna, the only child to retain any emotion attachment, has succeeded in escaping her father’s overbearing attitude with a busy career with the airlines. The youngest son has given up completely on his father’s and brother’s criticism by embracing an altruistic approach to life: he chooses to spend his time with people who need his help rather than wasting it on a family who refuses it.
This is a well-crafted story with believable characters that keeps the readers enthralled on a highly emotional and intellectual level—definitely a must read.
As Fischer’s story also reveals, the aging of family members, in particular when one of them is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, creates opportunity as well as challenge. The title, “Time to Let Go,” aptly captures the theme of loss and acceptance that gets played out in the book. It might just as well have been titled “Time to Take Hold” or “Carpe Diem,” e.g. “seize the day”. An equally important theme in the book has to do with learning to live more fully in the present. That also means making the most of what the present offers, even with all its limitations.
I’m not just talking about the elder couple, Walter and Biddy, at the center of the story, but their children as well. In particular, their daughter, Hanna, caught up in her own midlife crisis. The challenges she faces are many. They include a tragic event at work, loneliness and social isolation, unresolved conflicts with her aging parents, as well as her mother’s affliction with Alzheimer’s.Read more ›
