Book 7: Five Days Left


Five Days Left

I read Five Days Left by Julie Lawson Timmer for a book club that I belong to.  This is Timmer's first novel, and I found it to be exceptional.  I will definitely look forward to more from her in the future.  The book is really two stories.  The first centers around Mara Nichols: formerly a successful lawyer, now a patient with Huntington's Disease.  The second story focuses on Scott Coffman, who has spent the past year fostering an 8-year-old boy who will now be returned to his mother, who has just been released from prison.  Both stories focus on the power of nontraditional families.  For a more complete review, check out my book blog here.
