           Next of Kin by Priscilla Lalisse-Jespersen, is non-fiction work about the death of her father. Living in Paris, Mrs. Jespersen received that unwanted but inevitable phone call while being miles away and worlds apart from her father who had been suffering with cancer.
          While back in the states for her father’s funeral, she reconnects with family and finds out that her father’s caretaker had not been treating her father as well as she had liked.
          I would have really loved if this book had been a full novel, perhaps the author would have been able to expound upon issues within her family and her father’s illness. I felt that the story didn’t flow well from point to point.
          Mrs. Lalisse-Jespersen is also the author of the novel, Stockdale. I may take a chance and add this to my TBR list.
