Hope Is Alive
Beautifully written, Nineteen Minutes is about love and loss. What would you do if you woke from an accident with no memory at all? Family have become strangers. Do you “wallow in self pity or… start to live again”?
How would you feel if the love of your life no longer knew you? “”I feel so lost… We’re both drowning.” Do you give up or try to rebuild the future?
Nineteen Letters deals with both a recovering coma patient and a parent with Alzheimer’s. The latter is slipping slowly away. The former has no previous memories. It is a bittersweet read that tugs at the heartstrings.
