One True Thing is another gut-wrencher from Anna Quindlen. It is the story of a 20-something just starting out who gives up everything to care for her dying mother. During this time, she discovers how little she knew the woman she thought she knew so well. She realized that she made her mother into what she needed her to be, just as we all do.
Anna Quindlen’s prose is beautiful and captures relationships so marvelously.
