day 06 - goodbye's the saddest word

There are, in time, some books that will leave impact in our lives. Books that change the way you think and the way you see things. And then, there are books that leave a mark in your very heart...

Day 06- A book that makes you sad

Jill Hucklesby's Last Kiss of the Butterfly

This book is absolutely heart-wrenching. It tells the story of a mother-daughter relationship from the daughter's point of view. The mother is ill and this book tells the last journey that they've taken together. The daughter is really close to her mother and the fact that she'll lose her sooner or later is eating away at her and her spirit. She tries to memorize every little thing about her mother. Her laughter, her voice, her smell. Every single thing she can. Though when the time comes, nothing could prepare her.

Last Kiss of the Butterfly is a tear-jerker. I had to read it alone in my bedroom so that no one can see the tears pouring down from my eyes. The words, the emotion that runs through this book... it's just intense. Losing a person we love so much, from the deepest of our soul is never easy. More so when it is the one person we're close to, the one person who gave birth to us.

There you go, the one book that takes me on an emotional flight. This one is a keeper.
