Sixtyfive Roses - review, Nov. 10 2006
Sixtyfive Roses is a beautiful story based mainly in a small southern Ontario city during the 1950's to 1980. The narrative has a natural flow, carrying the reader through the seemingly insurmountable challenges confronting the Summerhayes family as they come to grips with Pamela's illness. Told from Heather' perspective, the oldest of four childen, Sixtyfive Roses skillfully articulates the broad range of feelings that she experiences, along with the issues that arise with other family members.
In Sixtyfive Roses, Pamela Summerhayes, through her loving sister, Heather, has given this world a very important gift. This story is a "must-read" for anyone who is touched by grave illness.
An important book, highly recommended.
