Summary
Mara Nichols, a terminally ill career woman, wife, and mother, and Scott Coffman, a middle-school teacher whose eight-year-old foster son is about to return to his former inmate mother, traverse the last five days they have to say goodbye to their loved ones
Summary
Mara Nichols is terminally ill, and the disease is progressing rapidly; rather than let it rob her of every function, she's determined to end her life (unbeknownst to her husband and daughter). She's given herself five days to say goodbye. Scott Coffman also has five days -- he's about to lose his much-loved foster son to the boy's biological mother, who's been in jail. Though they've never met in person, Mara and Scott are close, thanks to an online forum; though their situations are different, debut author Julie Timmer adroitly captures their shared difficulty -- of how and when to say goodbye. You'll want to have a box of tissues available before embarking on this heart-wrenching journey. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
