Daughter Reborn: From Baby Girl to Midlife Orphan



A Daughter Reborn is the story of broadcast radio veteran Monnie Whitson’s sad, yet beautiful goodbye to her parents. She watched her mother slip away from Parkinson’s Disease in 2008. A year later she witnessed her father die from cancer. The journey left her a midlife orphan, but a daughter reborn through love and forgiveness. Sadly, Monnie’s journey is the same for many adult children. This raw, poignant memoir describing her family’s struggle with terminal illness also will give comfort to those who have held on to false guilt after the death of a parent or loved one. More importantly, Monnie’s story gives inspiration to those determined to harvest every possible drop of joy from those difficult, last days. A Daughter Reborn takes you through the trauma of Parkinson’s Disease and cancer through Monnie’s personal journal entries and sweet letters from her parents, while sharing her eventual return to a life filled with joy and purpose.
