Summary
Mara is a successful lawyer, and devoted wife and mother. Struggling with a devastating illness, she has set herself five days to make the ultimate decision for her family. Scott lives a thousand miles away, and is a foster parent to a troubled eight-year-old. Scott is facing his own five day countdown until his beloved foster son is returned to his biological mother. The two connect through an online forum, and find a friendship to help guide them through the most difficult, and momentous, week of their lives
Summary
Mara Nichols is terminally ill, and the disease is progressing rapidly; rather than let it rob her of every function, she's determined to end her life (unbeknownst to her husband and daughter). She's given herself five days to say goodbye. Scott Coffman also has five days -- he's about to lose his much-loved foster son to the boy's biological mother, who's been in jail. Though they've never met in person, Mara and Scott are close, thanks to an online forum; though their situations are different, debut author Julie Timmer adroitly captures their shared difficulty -- of how and when to say goodbye. You'll want to have a box of tissues available before embarking on this heart-wrenching journey. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
