What would you do if a hard-boiled, ninety-two year old relative, over 4,000 miles away in New England, suddenly needed live-in care? What would co-habitation be like if she flaunted plenty of spunk and mental acuity, fighting you on everything you deemed best for her (or even for you)? Battles are fought and lessons learned when a stubborn, independent, fifty-six year-old woman moves from Alaska to care for her aunt in New Hampshire. Spirited dialog illustrates how different, and yet how much alike, are these two eccentric women. Disparate attitudes toward money and life choices are passionately defended, tit for tat. The book reminds us to honor and respect personal freedoms.
