Product Description:
She is terminally ill, and asks her son to fly home to help her die. What is her son to do? Respected and popular, Pat Davison practised as Dr Patricia Fergusson on New Zealand's West Coast. Now she is nearly 85, with secondary cancers. She can no longer paint - her passion - or even read. Formidably intelligent, she makes up her mind. This is no longer living. She is determined to die. Her son Sean's day by day account of what happens when he returns to be with her holds nothing back. It happened, and it is true. Sometimes the candour is almost excruciating but the story is shot through with humour and wry self-awareness, with the deep bond of tenderness between mother and son never faltering. When family and friends gather, and old hurts and slights and awkwardnesses emerge, everyone is tested. Before We Say Goodbye speaks directly to countless families. It challenges us in our deepest selves. Many will call it a love story.
