Book Marks: Coffee & Camaraderie
A mother’s final gift
Paula: A Memoir by Isabel Allende
When her 28-year-old daughter became gravely ill and fell into a coma, the author began to write the
story of her family for her unconscious child. In the telling we hear of delightful and bitter childhood memories, outrageous relatives, struggles with love and the most intimate family secrets passed along in whispers. A powerful, heartrending memoir that evokes the magical and the spiritual.
