When Lisa traveled home to visit her parents in December 2011, she never expected an ordinary three-day weekend to turn into an extraordinary 14-day observance of her mother's life - and, ultimately, death. 14 Days is a story of parental loss and how to lovingly, bravely, and gracefully let go of a hand you've been holding your entire life. From a child's first breath to a mother's last, this memoir shows how closing that circle can be a celebration of this unbreakable bond.
I personally have taken care of many people on there last days on earth. From my grandpa to others in the nursing home/home health. This book depicts exactly what it's like. In this book I cried at times and others I laughed so hard! The person narrating did an amazing job! This is honestly real life of a family when someone is dying. I finished this book on a road trip in 2 days! I couldn't and wouldn't put it down. After reading this I felt like I was in the living room with this family! Amazing telling of this families journey through her mothers final days!
