Billy's Halo by Ruth McKernan

Recommended Posts

This book is about the relationship between a female scientist and her father during the last year of his life after he became ill. The book is intermingled with descriptions of his illnesses, the love Ruth had for her Dad and their close relationship, and description using her scientific knowledge of his illnesses and comparing them to events/feelings in our everyday lives. Some bits are a bit too scientific and I skip over them, but it is a well-written book using clear examples. I have heard her speak about the book which is why I'm reading it; she has good insight into what makes us who we are and what influences our thinking and being.
