The end of Eve

In this story the author recounts her life following her mother’s diagnosis of terminal cancer. Mother and daughter have had a challenging relationship and the author strives to “Behave in a way that you’re going to be proud of.” as her mother navigates her illness. This is a challenging and brave book in part because the author discusses in intimate detail the trauma her family experienced in the past and how that impacts her current relationship with her mother and her partner. Although the tone can be a bit harsh at times, I appreciate the effort the author made to honor her mother in the best way she knew how. In difficult times, we all do the best way can, and this is the story of family working to do just that.
