The Still Point of the Turning World free pdf "A brilliant study of the wages of mortal love." --"The New York Times Book Review"

What does it mean to be a success? To be a good parent? To live a meaningful life? Emily Rapp thought she knew the answers when she was pregnant with her first child. But everything changed when nine-month-old Ronan was diagnosed with Tay-Sachs disease, a rare and always-fatal degenerative disorder. He was not expected to live beyond the age of three. Rapp and her husband were forced to re-evaluate everything they thought they knew about parenting and to learn to parent without a future.

Even before the book's publication, Rapp set the Internet ablaze with her "New York Times" op-ed piece about parenting a terminally ill child. An immediate bestseller, "The Still Point of the Turning World" is Rapp's memorial to her lost son and an inspiring and exquisitely moving reminder to love and live in the moment.
