Farewell Tour of a Terminal Optimist (KelpiesEdge)
About this deal
After fourteen years of blaming Arthur for this misfortune he’s given the opportunity for revenge, but although Munro is the one suffering from Alzheimer’s it’s Harry who should be questioning his own memories in this story that warns of the dangers of recollections and revenge. With little income and no way to live off their poor land, Maggie tries to provide for her family the way her father always had - with his hunting rifle and whatever animals the forest would provide. The fact that connor has terminal cancer but is trying to live his life to the fullest is heartwarming.
But Connor's left two things behind -- the medication he needs to keep him alive, and the girl who makes living bearable. Dodging the police, joy riding and extreme partying -- if Connor's dying, he might as well enjoy one last wild adventure.
Any number of people had reason to assault Harry Bains but his seventeen year old step son Lorn McGregor is the one in custody, and he needs to get out.
Read more about the condition Very Good: A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition.The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged. Books about dying teenagers are not normally my go-to read, but this book had just the right amount of humour to counterbalance the sadness. Thank you also to John and Laura Young for Teapot Trust – Art Therapy should be a prescribed medicine for all!
