Customer Review

on 20 August 2011
Gift of Time is a brave, and ultimately inspiring book.
When Rory Maclean's mother, Joan, was diagnosed with terminal cancer, he decided, with his wife Katrin, that she should spend her remaining days with them in their Dorset cottage. All three kept diaries of the five months before Joan died, and it is these perspectives, these three distinctive voices, of the challenges, emotions, frustrations and even joys of a terminal illness, that Maclean cleverly blends into a revealing, engrossing and emotional book.
In the telling, the bonds of love between all three, and other relatives and friends, are made clear, and heightened by the inevitability of the final outcome.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book, this most personal of journeys by one of this country's most
acclaimed travel writers
