Words to Live By

The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe isn’t a new book, but it is a beautiful one which touched my heart.

It is a memoir based on the author’s relationship and experiences with his mother after she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Much of the book is the author’s recollections of the many times he accompanied his mother while she sat and received chemotherapy treatments. During this time they discussed many books which led them to become a book club of two.

Mary Anne Schwalbe led an incredible life of service to others in addition to being a wife, mother, and humanitarian. As I read this book, I came to love and admire her. I am grateful her son shared the story of their final years together. It was a great inspiration to me. If you’ve not yet read this memoir, I highly recommend it.
