The TV is on, and I’m on the couch, leaning as far back as I can. My heavy, indecisive brown eyes—their lenses blurred ever since my tumultuous, too-soon entrance into the world—flutter between open and shut. I am half-watching half-listening to a football game on a Sunday afternoon. Was that the doorbell?
“Who is it?” I call out, expecting to hear my daughter, Megan’s, voice. These days, she is the one person who visits me. The only person who knows I’m making my home in this little oasis fashioned from wood felled by my own hand.
“Terry, it’s Mom. I’m here to help you move.”My mom? That’s not possible. She’s…
Wait. To help me move? Oh, God.
I rise from the couch and glance back at my lifeless body.
Likened to literary giant, Mitch Albom, you’ll find What Death Taught Terrence a worthy addition to your library and the reading of it a life-affirming journey.
McFadden shows how learning to look beyond outward appearances not only enriches our understanding of others but also deepens self-knowledge.
There are lessons in What Death Taught Terrence, but in a way that’s not preachy and accessible by all lifestyles.
What Death Taught Terrence is a wonderful and humbling read.
