A Daughter's Memoir
by Miriam R. Stone
Candlewick Press, 2003
Review by Christian Perring, Ph.D.
Apr 10th 2003 (Volume 7, Issue 15)

At the End of Words is a collection of poems and reflections by high school student Miriam Stone on the illness and death of her mother.  Martha Stone had cancer, and she gradually lost the fight.  Her final days were spent in a hospice.  Her daughter Miriam records her fear, sorrow, anger and pain as Martha endured treatment until they made the decision to stop.  The book is so short that it does not build up a detailed picture of the relationship between mother and daughter.  Nevertheless, Miriam’s words are poignant and sad.  More importantly, they do manage to provide a sense of the resolution she arrives at after her mother’s death.  The book ends with her leaving for college, Columbia University.  At the End of Words may be helpful for other teenagers who are going through similar losses.
