This memoir will grab you and stay with you long after you read it.

The unique juxtaposition of an adult who depended for her very survival on the steady hand of her mother who, at the end of her parents’ life, in turn was tasked with their care makes for an absorbing, page-turning read. Written clearly and moving easily between the distance and the near past, My Turn is almost too sad to bear. Ms. Wright is no sentimentalist; she give us the unvarnished truth in small sips, with only the occasional upbeat break in the tension. And in the process, she has created a very special memoir. If you plan to get old, you should read this book. I loved it.
