Book Review: And Every Morning The Way Home Gets Longer and Longer by Fredrik Backman
“The meaning of life: Company. Company. And ice cream.” “What kind of ice cream?”
Wonderful. Should be read by everyone who is a grandparent, plans to be one, or has grandparents. A poignant look inside generations–consecutive and skipped. Short; powerful.
“Are we here to learn how to say good-bye, Grandpa?” “I’m afraid we are.”
Backman explains that he didn’t write this book for us, but for his family. I’m so glad he shared it. The relationships and the emotions ring true.
Why do people who don’t believe in heaven assume, if they’re wrong, they’ll go there?
“What can we do to help Grandpa?” “We can walk down the road with him.”
