The 411 by Maria:

I read this book over a week ago and it still sits with me. What an interesting story. The book starts out with Jude at the Bluff.  From the first chapter I was completely engrossed in this story of a woman who is in-between life and death. Her unborn baby is keeping her here as the doctors do what they can to get the fetus to term.  It was a roller coaster ride from the first moment until the very quiet ending. While Jude is the focus, she is surrounded by some interesting secondary characters. There is her best friend Frances,  Jude's estranged sister, Paul her lawyer, Mary Shannon Paul's wife even her deceased mother Gay who was an alcoholic makes an appearance.

This is a thought provoking, interesting, read that will have you wondering about the link between life and death and have you contacting a lawyer to write up your living will.

 Great Read!

  1. This book sounds like it would be very interesting but also a real tearjerker. I think most of try to avoid thinking of death and dying but getting our affairs in order before anything happens is necessary. I might have to read this. Thanks.
