Very insightful on loss and sorrow.

This book is an interesting look at the tensions between what is best for the individual versus the family. This really resonated with me personally coming from a tight knit family. I liked how the book talks about what lead up and happened after the death of the narrator's brother. Towards the end you learn what happened that day and gain an understanding of why different characters responded the way that they did to the death.
