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.
