Publisher's Summary

From the author of Cicada Spring....
Sometimes the wheel of life doesn't spin in your favor, and sometimes there's nothing you can do about it. Brian Lethando knows this firsthand. His mother left him when he was only two years old, and his father died shortly after of a heroin overdose. 20 years later, when the woman who took Brian in and raised him as her own son begins to suffer the effects of Alzheimer's, the two of them set out on one last road trip to discover the true meaning of the word family.

So much heartbreak

This short story is heavily emotional. Little is as devastating or cruel as Alzheimer's. And as emotional as his reunion with his mother is, it's the Alzheimer's that sticks with me. Especially considering the interaction between the themes of this disease and of the significance of being a parent. The tension leading up to meeting the birth mother was palpable and how it played out is not like any parent child reunion I've ever read.

This was not an easy listen, but it was a rewarding one.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

It kept my attention...

This is a nice story, emotional and interesting. However... I only gave it 3 stars because it curses God's name almost at the end - (which was not disclosed at the place where I got this audio-book, and there is a place to do it before posting your books for reviews) . A good, well written book doesn't need bad language, you can imply it, or use substitutes. But if you feel you have to write it, please warn those who prefer not to put it in their minds.

The narrator did a great job.

I received this audio-book free for an honest review.
