Biographies and Memoirs - Large Print Standing Order Plan

A Mix of bestselling and well-reviewed biographies and memoirs — including: historical biographies, celebrity biographies and memoirs, and inspiring narrative memoirs relating fascinating and compelling experiences of intriguing people.



After almost twenty years of caring for elderly parents, Plum Johnson and her three brothers must empty and sell the beloved family home — twenty-three rooms full of history, antiques, and oxygen tanks. The task turns out to be much harder and more rewarding than she imagined.


Customer Reviews

“At times heartbreaking and at others hysterically funny . . . the book’s descriptive prose brings [the] places and people to life and poignantly conveys the quasi-spiritual journey that helps Johnson overcome her grief.”

— Publishers Weekly

“Generous and heartfelt, Johnson's book offers an intimate look at family and especially mother-daughter connections. It is an uplifting affirmation of human relationships and the cycle of life itself. A warmly candid memoir of navigating family, aging, and death.”

— Kirkus Reviews
