When MARY LOUISE BARRON called her daughter on May 5th to share the news that she had just been diagnosed with cancer and would be having surgery the following week, she insisted she would still travel to her grandson’s university graduation in early June. But she never made that trip, losing her fight with the disease just twenty-one days later. In this novella-length companion to her award-winning A Daughter’s Gift, Jacqui shares what unfolded over that heartbreaking three-week period, using those twenty-one days to bring into focus the character, courage, and strength of the woman who had meant so much to so many… and the mother whose example, expectations, and strength had been critical in driving her daughter to try always to live up… To the measure of that remarkable woman.
