This book shares Campanella's journey through the last year of her mother's life, from diagnosis to death. Although it was known early that her mother had a limited life expectancy, Campanella's writing emphasizes living, loving, and letting go. The book highlights personal accounts and events that were meaningful to the author, her mother, and the entire family. Anticipating death was only a part of the story; other parts focused on providing the uplifting aspects of celebration and continuing the special bonds during this journey.
