  "truly a love story" by msharry (see profile) 04/24/12

Beautiful story of how a loving husband helps his wife fulfill her bucket list before her death. Obviously a depressing scenario, but the love between them and their strength in fighting disease and disability results in a tender, sweet and satisfying story of a final journey, Many things for book club to discuss: parent/child relationships, euthanasia, choices in medical care. Very emotionally draining but strangely triumphant.

 
  "Where the River Ends" by bmullinax (see profile) 04/29/14

The question was "where does the book end?" I am sorry but I couldn't even finish it. It was hard to get into, hard to follow, depressing, etc...But, I am not going to give up. Will attempt to read other books by this author in the future. Believe everyone should receive a 2nd chance!

 
  "Entertaining" by lpollinger (see profile) 04/05/19

Doss grew up poor in Georgia. Abigail Grace was raised in a privileged life, the daughter of a powerful southern Senator. When a chance meeting happens they both realize they are soul mates, much to the displeasure of the Senator. Ten years into the marriage Abbie devolps a very aggressive for of cancer. Treatment will not help her. Her dying wish is to complete ten things, one of which is to canoe down a river. Along the journey they encounter many obstacles.
While this story was entertaining I found it moved a bit slow. The writing, while good failed to bring tears to my eyes.
