This review is from: Memories of Mom (Paperback)
The tear eliciting story of Alexia E. Fraser in "Memories of Mom" describes, explicitly, a daughter who did her all in securing the best care for a mother who though lived a long, meaningful and caring life in her early years, experienced debilitating health conditions and mistreatment toward the dusk of her life under a healthcare system that appeared deficient in crucial areas of care administration. The heartrending story also depicts the salience and impact of true love, whether for family or lover. Although critics may argue that the writer might have dealt too deeply in details in some respects in presenting her facts, this could quickly be countered by the writer's obvious intent to demonstrate the severity of the illness of the her mother, so as to have its desired impact of the personal sacrifices she had made, and to highlight the less than professional approach to healthcare in some of these so-called health providing institutions.
You will not regret reading this very touching story. It will teach you how to love unconditionally,and how not to become hopeless during difficult times.
