Uplifting yet realistic, her story examines what it means when the person who has been your source of strength is in need of some himself. It's that bittersweet "in between" moment when you're a devoted wife and mother, but you'll always be Daddy's girl.

Narcissistic, whiny, boring
This was the selection for a book club that I'm in. I went into it with an open mind, but it was only through gritted teeth that I was able to make my way through. The story is a memoir of Kelly Corrigan, a mother of two who is diagnosed with breast cancer at 37. Her father is soon after diagnosed with bladder cancer. This is the story of the one year of her and her father's treatments.
It sounds like it should be good, but it isn't. Corrigan goes on and on about how great her father is until I couldn't stand it. She whines in the story constantly. Everything is always about her. (Examples: she freaks out on her husband because he dares to call his parents for 10 minutes during an overnight trip they take to get away; she freaks out again because he doesn't sufficiently "get excited enough" about a job promotion she gets, etc, etc). It's just painful to listen to this book.
Don't waste your time and money!
