Mr Bernstein has tackled a very difficult and emotive subject with compassion, strength and above all, love. He clearly cared deeply for his parents and gives a frank account of the effects of cruel and debilitating illness. The prose is very easy to read. He tells the story in such a way that his mother remains a strong and dignified character. She would be proud of his writing and her story deserves to be told. I'm pleased I read this book and although it's not always comfortable reading, we can all take something positive from it. Thank you Mr Bernstein.
