This event is free to attend and will be held in the courtyard at DIESEL, A Bookstore in Brentwood. Masks are required to attend.

Can anybody know what's best for others? What happens when loved ones are no longer able to speak for themselves and crucial decisions about their care need to be made by their relatives? 

A sister’s love versus a cruel fate. A story of fierce love and heartbreaking grief. Claire Waters, an Italian mystery writer living in Los Angeles rushes to Italy after her older sister's devastating brain-hemorrhage, determined to restore her to health -- or help her die with dignity. Claire is a gritty decision-maker, a lone wolf who values freedom above all else. Her sister, Ondina -- now walking on the edge of death or a severely limited life -- is wise, cautious, and sociable. They may be different, but have remained close despite the distance. Claire is faced with a dilemma impossible to solve. Would her non-verbal sister want to go on struggling, damaged as she is, or end her suffering? Forsaking her career, Claire hardly leaves her sister’s side, refusing to give up the hope of healing. It takes an exhausting and lonely year for stubborn Claire to listen to her silent sister. 

Gloria Mattioni is the author of several books and a long-time magazine contributor. She has been a storyteller since she learned to form complete sentences and became a professional writer at eighteen. Raised in Milan, Italy, she moved to Los Angeles in 1992. She shares her home with her husband, a skittish rescue dog and the occasional strays she picks up to find them a forever home. She's a proud member of the Authors' Guild and a volunteer with the Women's Fiction Writers Association. She’s also an avid hiker who finds her solace in nature, a worshipper of waves and Italian cooking.
