The long awaited adult version of Goodbye, Grandma Erma, which won two Best Children’s Book prizes in 2001, is a personal journal of the author’s time with Erma and her family during her final months of life. It has been recommended by Dr. Shigeaki Hinohara, a leading authority on terminal care in Japan.
“There are many books written about caring for ill or elderly people, but I don’t know of any journal on terminal care which is so warm and real. This book is written with the loving connection between Grandmother Erma and the author.
