And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer (by Fredrik Backman) … heartwrenching but worth the tears

And Everyday the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer’ is a short, but delightful, story that demonstrates the love one man has for his family…specifically his son, grandson, and wife. However, his slow descent into a life of memory loss is painful to experience. He fears not being able to remember any of precious memories.

This book was nothing short of amazing. It is a realistic view into how complicated it is to lost someone you love through their loss of memories. While slowly slipping away, the main character struggles to hold onto as many cherished memories and the family members who surround him.

It is heartwrenching to read, but is worth the tears that will trickle down your cheeks. One to put on your to-be-read list!
