The Still Point of the Turning World
The Still Point of the Turning World (Penguin) burns through the wrenching terror and maddening sorrow Emily Rapp endures while loving and losing her son to Tay-Sachs disease. Despite the sadness, these stunning, spiritual reflections leave the reader feeling, as Rapp writes, "the way you do in that moment when you hold in your arms the person who has traveled a long way, maybe all their lives, to reach you."
