Dying Unfinished

by Maria Espinosa


Dying Unfinished by Maria Espinosa is a well-written book.  The one issue that I had with the book is that it bounced around quite a bit as it spanned three generations.  For me, it was hard to follow.

Dying Unfinished is a highly descriptive book that explains in vivid details the life of Eleanor and Rosa, a mother and daughter. Rosa, the daughter, is the narrator, telling the story of her mother, Eleanor. The love that they shared is evident, flowing nicely between generations. However, a constant theme is another kind of love, the romantic love that Eleanor shared with men who were not her husband.

Eleanor provides details about why she has chosen the life she leads, what it means to her and how she feels, including her need to escape the mundane.  Things that most of us dream of, she lives.

How many of you have dreamed of having a life to truly call your own?  What would you have to do to accomplish that life?  This book provides a way to escape your current life and lets you live in a dream world for a short time.

Short and sweet and a way to enjoy something that you just can't have!
