 About the Book 

Well, Im all frothy about this one. Its a quick read but I had to stop and put it aside--forever. And the reasons arent all that clear cut. But the major one was that it was depressing the hell of me.But let me back up a bit and sort of describe why I chose the word frothy and not some singular term that might more easily describe my emotional conflict with UNFORGETTABLE.The book starts out great and I was interested. I didnt follow or even know about Scotts tweets, but I know of Scott Simon of course. Hes a dear man and Id recognize his voice anywhere.So initially I was reading along, but then I began to loose my focus. Parts of the narrative just werent that interesting to me. But at the same time I was emotionally caught up in a sons homage and literary act of love for his mother. So a bit bored and yet overwhelmed. Im not sure how the two can co-exist but I was definitely overwhelmed. Depressed and sad and inspired and sad is just not a place I can be right now. I have older parents. I just cant follow the author right now to the place hes leading his readers...Well written, I came to cherish the nursing professionals yet again. And not so much doctors. This is a wonderful love story.
