Overview

"Love is an uneasy river. It flows deep, with emotional currents that will not be contained in a single spot. Always moving, always evolving, it carries with it all the fragments of life it collects along the way..."

A River Called Forever is a true and inspirational story about aging, life, love, and death. It chronicles the journey that begins when a twenty-nine year old baby boomer is thrust into the role of parental caregiver and ends twenty-two years later with the death of both parents.

Along the way there are lighthearted explorations into the reasons God gives us families, parents as hooligans, and the patience to survive them, all set against the backdrop of growing up in the 1950-60's. The work also reveals the increasing challenge of our society as forty-five million Americans face the reality of caring for those who once cared for them.

The story pivots around a mother's deathbed and the resurrection of life's memories in the final hours. It offers an in-depth glimpse into a profound encounter that altered one family's perception forever.

A River Called Forever exists as a testament to hope-eternal for all those who will take on the responsibility of caring for others.

    A Very Touching and Entertaining Story

    I have never read a book that made laugh so hard and cry just as much. The author seems to have such an amazing outlook on life. I felt an emotional connection to the story and would highly recommend it to anyone.
