Welcome to A-Z Wednesday, hosted by Vicki, at Reading at the Beach.  Every week, we join together to celebrate books “alphabetically.”

Here’s how it works….

1~ a photo of the book
2~ title and synopsis
3~ link(amazon, barnes and noble etc.)
4~ Come back to Reading At The Beach and leave your link in the comments.
5~ If you’ve already reviewed the book, add the link.

This week’s letter:  Author – First or Last Name – “R”


Today’s author is Anne Roiphe, who has written many books that I have enjoyed.  Epilogue is a memoir written in the author’s later years.

On Amazon, I found this tidbit:

Grief is in two parts, writes Roiphe (Fruitful; 1185 Park Avenue). The first is loss. The second is the remaking of life. In her new memoir of late-life widowhood, she encounters the latter….

Here’s my review.

What books did you find today?  I hope you’ll stop by and share some comments and links.

  1. My mom lived it, but she was a young widow. My dad died at age 43 of brain cancer. She should write a book! Your Christmas Boyds bears in the header has prompted me to get mine out and get some decorations up! ;o)


    • Oh, wow, I’m sorry to hear that, Nise. Yes, I have discovered that writing helps with the catharsis.

      As for the Boyds Bears, I started collecting them in the early nineties, but in 2002, when I started working for a private foster care agency, I was inspired by one of my colleagues whose office was a literal playground of dolls and bears. The ones in my header were part of my office decorations that year.

      Thanks for stopping by.


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
