The Family on Beartown Road

A Memoir of Learning and Forgetting
Van Pelt, Elizabeth Cohen (Book - 2004 )
The Family on Beartown Road


Item Details

A New York Time s Notable Book The Family on Beartown Road is Elizabeth Cohen's true and moving portrait of love and courage. Elizabeth, a member of the "sandwich generation"--those caught in the middle, simultaneously caring for their children and for their aging parents--is the mother of baby Ava and the daughter of Daddy, and responsible for both. In this story full of everyday triumphs, first steps, and an elder's confusion, Ava finds each new picture, each new word, each new song, something to learn greedily, joyfully. Daddy is a man in his twilight years, for whom time moves slowly and lessons are not learned but quietly, frustratingly forgotten. Elizabeth, a suddenly single mother with a career and a mortgage and a hamperful of laundry, finds her world spiraling out of control. Faced with mounting disasters, she chooses to confront life head-on, and to see the unique beauty in each and every moment. Imbued with an unquenchable spirit, The Family on Beartown Road takes us on a journey through the remarkable landscape that is family.
