Things I Want My Daughters to Know by Elizabeth Noble

One of the rewarding aspects of reading a good book is sharing it with others.  A special young woman made my day by stopping in the library to share this wonderful title.

Things I Want My Daughters to Know examines how those facing terminal illness can continue to affect the lives of loved ones.  Readers will not find long discourse and clinical discussion of disease.  The author uses journal entries of the vibrant and loving Barbara, mother of four girls, to strengthen each of her daughters on their respective journeys into womanhood.

There are few of us today haven’t been touched by cancer in one way or another.  The author’s work is a reassuring validation that life moves along for the living sheltered by the strength of those whose memories are held dear. 

I urge readers to pause and reflect on the truth and beauty of the author’s words on page 358.
