Book Description:
In this beautiful book, Elizabeth Cohen gives us a true and moving portrait of the love and courage of a family. Elizabeth, a member of the sandwich generation, people caught in the middle of simultaneously caring for their children and for their aging parents, is the mother of Ava and the daughter of Daddy and responsible for both. Hers is the story of a woman s struggle to keep her family whole, to raise her child in a house of laughter and love, and to keep her father from hiding the house keys in his slippers. In this story full of everyday triumphs, first steps, and elderly confusion, Ava, a baby, finds each new picture, each new word, each new song something to learn greedily, joyfully. Daddy is a man in his twilight years for whom time moves slowly and lessons are not learned but quietly, frustratingly forgotten. Elizabeth, a suddenly single mother with a career and a mortgage and a hamper of laundry, finds her world spiraling out of control yet full of beauty. Faced with mounting disasters, she chooses to confront life head on. Written in prose imbued with unquenchable spirit, The House on Beartown Road is a journey through the remarkable landscape that is family.
