I just finished a book on Kindle which I loved:
Flying Fossils by Lynne Gentry. It's free and it didn't have
many reviews and I want to spread the word.
Here's one review which describes the way I feel
about the book: all wrapped up in a
very difficult mother/daughter relationship that transforms
thru the deft handling by Lynne Gentry. “Flying Fossils” is a
magnificent story of heartbreak, broken relationships, healing
and restoration. The women in this story are tough, assertive
and needy; each looking for love from the other and unwilling
to accept it.
wonderful characters with deep backstories and personalities
that fill the pages with attitude and humor. If the future
volumes revolve around this group of women, I’ll be seeking
them out to follow their progress. The secondary characters
quirky and fun, adding richness to the story rather than
The subject of
parent/child role reversal and dementia is one that I’ve gone
thru and so have many of my friends. It’s not easy and Gentry
writes about it with dignity, a touch of humor and a
familiarity that intimates personal experience. The insights
gleaned by the daughter will serve readers well in their own
“Flying Fossils” is
written without gratuitous violence, foul language or sexual
content. There is a light thread of faith that runs thru the
book as well as a tiny seed of new age philosophy by one
secondary character. None of these aspects are prominent or
preachy. This is a dynamic, important book that’s worthy of
being read by many and of being read again; not something I
say very often.
hope that others will enjoy this, too.
