A toast to the living

"Making Toast by Roger Rosenblatt. Roger and his wife Ginny were living out on Long Island and enjoying life. Then the call came that their daughter Amy had died of a rare heart condition. The couple goes to stay with their son-in-law and help raise the three small kids. This book had the potential of being maudlin, but Rosenblatt is too good a writer to go down that road. It was just a wonderful book, full of insight, poignancy and honesty. Highly recommended."
