MY MOTHER IS A RIVER BY DONATELLA DI PIETRANTONIO – BOOK REVIEWI
I met Franca the translator and publisher of this book at the Folkestone Book Festival last year, she was so moved by the book that she began a publishing company just so she could publish the book for us all to enjoy.
This book follows the route of a mother and daughter fighting the disease that is robbing her mother of her memories. A very moving tale following the life of Esperia who comes from a small village in Italy. A sensitive and powerful story of love through the years and family life.
I enjoyed this book and the details it covered on all levels. This disease robs people of their life as once the memories are gone, what do you have? Donations from this book are going to the Alzheimer’s Society as the research they are doing is very needed before we lose the memories of the ones we love.
