Books about death are invariably about life. In her book Memento Mori, Muriel Spark says: “Death, when it approaches, ought not to take one by surprise. It should be part of the full expectancy of life. Without an ever-present sense of death life is insipid. You might as well live on the whites of eggs.” In that vein, this book deals with the ever-present reality of death while concurrently embracing life. It celebrates the lives of the greatest generation while alerting aging baby boomers to be aware of what is waiting for them around the next corner. As the clients in this book journey through the final stages of their lives toward death and the feeling that time is running out, Hope, the protagonist, conversely journeys toward a richer and fuller life. As clichéd as this sounds, this thoughtful book encourages readers to celebrate life and to live each day as the gift it is.
