They Left Us Everything
A MemoirBook - 2016
A disciplined British father, an exuberant Southern mother, four kids, fifty years' worth of stuff, and the twenty-three-room house that stored it all. After almost twenty years of caring for elderly parents - first for their senile father, and then for their cantankerous ninety-three-year-old mother - author Plum Johnson and her three younger brothers experience conflicted feelings of grief and relief when their mother, the surviving, parent, dies. Now they must empty and sell the beloved family home, which hasn't been de-cluttered in more than half a century. A powerful storytelling, particularly for anyone who has lost a parent or close loved one. Ideal for book clubs.
