This is a searing, powerful memoir of a daughter making and remaking her life in her mother's image as she forges through two distinctly different losses: "In one four-month arc, between a February snowfall and May's white dogwood blossoms, my husband left the hangers in his closet swinging, and I buried my mother in a plain pine casket."
Mining the dual losses of both her young marriage and her beloved mother, McColl confronts her identity as a woman, walking lightly in the footsteps of the woman who came before her and clinging fast to the joy she left behind. With candor reminiscent of classics like C. S. Lewis's A Grief Observed, Joy Enough offers a story that blooms with life.
This is a finely tuned celebration of the joy and pain of loving well, even when one's time is short
