Now in her 70s, Ronni has ALS, a degenerative motor neuron disease. Ronni is adamant that her estranged daughters, Nell, Meredith and Lizzy, must help her take her own life. As their mother's illness draws them together, they discover that blood might be thicker than water after all....

Too drawn out!

I struggled to finish this book as I found the story slow and very predictable. It was quite repetitive too (regarding the characters) which was also irritating! Sorry this one was not for me.

Fantastic

This has to be one of the best audio books I have listened to in a long time. Do not hesitate to download.

A book that warms the soul like the sunshine!

An enjoyable listen, with characters i warmed to and cared for. I wouldn't say the story will stand out in my memory, nor had a big impact on me. But in terms of entertainment and feel good factors it scores highly! Worth a read/listen.
