An astronomer discovers that consciousness is no less mysterious than deep space as he spends time with his mother during her last days on earth. More
Twain has always been able to work a room. He’s also good at avoiding the room where his mother progresses more deeply into Alzheimer’s, thanks to the live-in care he is able to hire. When it seems likely that her battle is almost over, he puts his career as a celebrity astronomer on hold to be with her. She takes longer to surrender than anticipated, however, so he teaches a solar astronomy class at the local community college to help pass the time. And as with everything he encounters during his stay, whether it’s the loss of a loved one or the possibility of new love, the experience is both more difficult and more beautiful than he imagined.
