Shimmer by Basia Bonkowski

A powerful story of love, life and loss by one of Australia's most distinguished women. Step inside one woman's very private world as Basia and her brothers gather to watch over their mother during the last fourteen days of her life. Heartrendingly poignant, Shimmer is touched with moments of humour and great insight, as author Basia Bonkowski comes to terms both with losing her mother and the heartbreak of her own personal journey. In the process, Basia learns much more about her relationship with her own children. Woven into the story are flashbacks to World War II, when Basia's mother fled Poland ahead of the advancing Russians, with Basia recording the hardships, struggles and secrets that her mother kept close to her heart. Basia's lyrical prose and sharp eye for detail create an unforgettable account of her family over three generations. It is a moving tribute to the strength of the human spirit and the ties that bind.
