In this refreshingly candid and poignantly lyrical memoir, Lorene Cary recounts time with her grandmother, Nana, from spending magical weekends with her in childhood to caring for her during her final years. An elegant, fiercely independent African American woman who fled the Jim Crow South as a child and managed her own business for most of her life, Nana moved in with her granddaughter at age 99. Stubborn and exacting, Nana proved a difficult patient, but as much as this is a relatable and heartening story about the trials and rewards of end-of-life caregiving, it's also a luminous personal and spiritual exploration of history, family, heritage, and forgiveness.
