The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan A touching memoir about a thirty-something mother of two who is diagnosed with advanced breast cancer just months before her father- and the center of her world- is diagnosed with an aggressive cancer. Touching and funny, you’ll want Corrigan to be your best friend and her father to be your surrogate dad.
Accidentally on Purpose by Mary Pols A memoir that details the results of a soon to be forty-year-old writer’s one night stand which starts innocently enough and ends with a pregnancy. Pols and her baby’s father never couple, but they deliberately work through their issues to become effective co-parents to a boy that brings meaning and grounding to their lives.
