Review this Book

Mother is it Worth it?

by

Mother is it Worth it? Is a hilarious, heartwarming and deeply emotional memoir which seeks to explore two questions. Firstly, if it’s sensible to leave prosperous careers in suburbia and move to an idyllic spot in the countryside to enjoy an unstructured, unusual life, which leads to the realisation of what is really important for a contented existence.


Secondly, what would you do if a beloved family member becomes ill with a long-term disability, and you feel unable to place them in residential care?

The book looks at how Rusley Turner and her husband resolved these questions, in an inspiring recollection of caring for a relative with a mental illness, with sundry other snippets about their lives including moving to the Welsh Outback. It will appeal to readers who are thinking about, or already caring for a loved one, or those considering a change of pace in life.

I found this book to be heartwarming regarding the struggles in the author's description on moving to Wales to make a new life on a farm but, at the same time, helping her husband look after her mother-in-law who had Alzheimer`s Disease and who came to live with them. The author does not gloss over living with an Alzheimer`s sufferer but writes about the sheer hard work this involves, but there is love and laughter along the way.

Found this such a compelling book to read about the traumas that can happen in every day life, warm hearted and so emotionally written yet managing to see the funny side at times.
It all worked well for a complete change of lifestyle.

The author gives a vivid description of this beautiful region, so it is clear to see why the couple fell in love with it. The story is one of hope, determination and devotion to their family member, and to the farm on which they have given their all.

The book grabs your attention from the first page, and holds it through to the last, so it's difficult to put down. One of the best memoirs I've read, so highly recommended.
