A Mother, A Daughter, A Two Week Goodbye
How do you let go of a hand you've held your whole life?
Goich’s story is wholly her own, but her experiences are relatable and her emotions will resonate with others who’ve suffered loss and cherished last moments. The narrative has familiar elements of family stories—like sibling personality conflicts and parental stubbornness—all woven around an intense core of abiding love. Her story will connect with adults who have experienced the bewildering nostalgia of returning home as an adult. Goich straddles a line common to middle age: she’s caught between the roles of a child losing a parent, and a caretaker for the dying and those left behind—especially her father. 14 Days is a clear-eyed (except for the tears) look at loss and familial love. - Melissa Wuske from Forward Reviews
