A Mothers Love
Rosalie Klein is a young mother, happily watching her three healthy children, Amanda, Matt and Josh, slowly blossom. Together with her husband Joey, she's always tried to provide the best for her family: a newly-built house in a New Jersey suburb, vacations and sleep-away camp during the summer; she even makes sure they keep up with their annual pediatrician checkups, including blood work. Then, one day following an ordinary physical, she learns that Matt has Acute Myelogenous Leukemia, a rapidly-growing cancer of the blood and bone marrow. Before Rosalie has a chance to catch her breath from receiving the frightening diagnosis, she's told Matt must be checked into a hospital immediately and begin chemotherapy in order to save his life. Scared and worried, Rosalie somehow manages to summon her strength for her son Matt and for her family.
Poignant, painful, and often humorous, A Mother's Love, is the tale of the next ten months in the life of the Klein family. It chronicles the extreme highs and lows, the fear and the joy, the tears and the laughter. Mostly, it narrates a story of love. If you've ever been a mother or a child, this is a must-read.
