    A Good Enough Daughter: A memoir Free read ✓ 0 A Good Enough Daughter, A memoirI recall reading Drinking the Rain and loving it about 15 years ago I bought copies for at least 4 friends and my copy has my notes scrawled all over as I pondered my own thoughts triggered by the writing I expected the same with this book but all I got is a big yawn It is full of uaint family stories for within family but not for publication I expected introspection and help to process my own family issues but it never happened It’s just a banal story like any adult child has experienced not understanding parents as adults until it’s too late

    A Good Enough Daughter: A memoir Free read ✓ 0 A Good Enough Daughter, A memoirFrom evidence of this memoir Shulman was a terrible daughter at least until she redeemed her self in middle age by taking care of her dying parents So this is a book to prove that finally she was a good daughter Her parents come out of this looking liking saints The book does not ring false Shulman isnt defensive or self justifying and her anguish over her parents illnesses and death rings true Doesn't give much insight into the feminist movement except in terms of how a young woman both breaks away from her parents and depends on them to save her when she gets in real troubleand how these parents stuck by her

    A Good Enough Daughter: A memoir Free read ✓ 0 A Good Enough Daughter, A memoirI'd never heard of this author but I love the memoir genre From the first chapter I was just annoyed Pretentiousness and some kind of superiority wafted from all the words So many words Some passages seemed an exercise for a class use as many words you can to describe something without actually saying what it is I'm sure she is a lovely person and has clearly sold a lot of books so this is merely my opinion I didn't care for this book and found it difficult to even skim through it

    A Good Enough Daughter: A memoir Free read ✓ 0 A Good Enough Daughter, A memoirThis was a tough book to read bc it deals with estrangements within a family and then the decline and death of her parents The author ended up working through her selfishness competition with her brother and parents but not until the very end of each of their lives Her parents were wonderful people and they suffered emotionally bc of her selfishness It was hard for me to like this author but I think she is very brave for sharing her honesty and regrets

    A Good Enough Daughter: A memoir Free read ✓ 0 A Good Enough Daughter, A memoirHaving faced the rewards and challenges of caring for my own parents in the last years of their lives I found a good measure of comfort in reading A Good Enough Daughter The memories and emotions of coping with beloved parents as they succomb steadily to Alzheimers and dementia are still immediate and raw as are the feelings of guilt and inadeuacy Shulman helped me accept that we love well do the best we are able and can ask no of ourselves
