Having lost my 96 1/2 yr old mother in the past year, I found this memoir a heartwarming, cheerful, heart-tearing, and uplifting on all emotions I experienced in the past six years of my mother's life and end of life. Both the son and daughter-in-law write separate chapters of their personal thoughts, experiences, feelings, questions and shared "Norma" with us in an eye-opening way to "hit the road" in our final chapters. I loved this book on so very many levels.

This recap of the year long blog Driving Miss Norma is well worth the read. It is uplifting, inspiring and just plain fun. Enjoy!

There are many important moments in Driving Miss Norma that everyone could benefit from. From talking about end-of-life care, the importance of saying "yes," and taking the time to talk to get to know each other, Driving Miss Norma encompasses the importance of living. While anyone can enjoy this book, I would recommend it to anyone struggling with grief as this book may give you a new perspective.

At first glance, I thought the book might be too sentimental for my tastes, but I ended up loving it and its message. A book the authors reference as one that helped shape their thoughts and feelings about end of life issues, and one I think everyone should read is Being Mortal by Atul Gawande. If you like the humor and playfulness of Driving Miss Norma, another multigenerational road trip story that reminded me of Miss Norma’s adventures is The Ride of Our Lives by Mike Leonard.
