  "We Want a Sequel!" by Librarian50 (see profile) 12/15/11

Roger Rosenblatt and his wife moved in with their son-in-law after the death of their daughter, Amy, and helped take care of the grandchildren. One member commented on the dearth of dates and detailed information on the author. I responded that this is more typical of what I would term a "memoir of grief" than of a typical memoir. Members' ratings averaged 3.67. One member commented, and others agreed, "We want a sequel!" Most of the members want to know what has happened since in the Rosenblatts' lives.

 
  "We want an update" by knitmarisa (see profile) 12/27/11

Our book club could have written the review written by another reviewer. We too wanted an update as to how the family is coping now and what sort of reflections Rosenblatt would make now. We felt this book was an accurate memoir of grief in that it starts out very disjointed and scattered, but becomes more coherent as it goes on. Our average rating was 3.7.
