A Good Death by Shelley Hobbs
A Good Death explores the boundaries of life and death, and what is more important: the family you grew up in or the one you make for yourself. Adrienne has had no contact with her parents since she ran away from rural Alberta seventeen years ago. Now in the big city, she lies in a coma following a tragic hit-and-run accident. Adrienne’s best friend, Ruth, is her legal substitute decision maker, must battle her mother, Margaret, over the hardest choice they -or anyone - will ever have to make. Ruth’s loyalty to her best friend and her innate stubbornness come up against Margaret’s intense religious convictions and fierce maternal instincts. It is a battle not only over a body, but over a soul.
