It's never easy to talk with aging parents about the end of life, and about Roz's own feelings of guilt that no matter what she did she wasn't doing enough to help them. The book begins when her parents were still living in Brooklyn apartment where she grew up, and follows them as they move into assisted living, their repeated stays in the hospital, and finally Hospice.
