  Poetic and Truthful Narative , 06/25/2011
Reviewer: Sandra
I loved this book. Alissa Hirshfeld Flores writes a poetic and truthful narrative of her mother's difficult battle with cancer and her own near death as a result of childbirth. With her keen interpretation of the formative events in her life, and her sharp comprehension of literature and psychology, she holds a looking glass to her own thoughts, emotions and experiences during a harrowing and exhilarating intense period in her life. Reading this book. I leaned the importance of living life with courage and purpose, and that facing my own death hand the death of loved ones can l bring me closer to God and to realizing why I am here on earth. The author teaches us how we are able to grow and help each other move more purposefully through time and space, with humor and deliberation.
