Written by the daughter of a late North Shore resident, Turn Right, Good Moon chronicles the final days leading to her mother’s death at home. Knowing she had advanced ovarian cancer, the author’s mother decided to die at home, surrounded by her family. Furthermore, she chose to follow ancestral ways, forgoing food and then water, until she met death. Simple, yet elegant prose describes her final days and the profound effect of her choice upon her children. Copies are available at TurnRightGoodMoon.com.
