Being There: A Daughter's Voice for her Father's Silence. by Aimi Medina
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Being There is a poignant memoire of a daughter dealing with the effects of her father’s stroke and the impact it had on her family. Written in a diary style format, it chronicles the day to day struggles of dealing with the effects of this major life change. The author reveals the depth of her emotional struggle with sadness and grace, and skillfully avoids the sense of self-pitying. This book was a beautiful tribute to both her parents and it would be extremely well received by anyone who has to deal with a traumatic event or illness of a parent.
