    1. Grandparents as Parents:Fifth Child:The Turbulent Path That Led to Parenting Our Child’s Child~By Lynne R. Gassel“God made a good decision.” The true story of a mother’s love for her family, her sacrifice and selfless journey into parenting—again. Parents don’t plan on their children becoming meth addicts. They don’t plan on burying their children and parents don’t plan on raising their children’s children.

    2. Even though you know the sad ending of the story, it was still a compelling read and I had trouble putting the book down. Lynn Gassel does a good job of telling a story that is all too common in our times. She is honest about not only her daughter's story but also her own. I thought I was old when I had my children at 35 and 37 years old and I can't imagine doing it again now that I am in my 60's. I have so much respect for grandparents all over that have stepped up to do the job that their own [...]

    3. I am unsure how to write a review to do this book justice. It is an important story about an actual nice American family impacted by addiction. It is an open and honest account of what happened to them and what is happening to many families but is usually kept private rather than shared.

    4. Although not the strongest writing, it was a compelling read that kept me reading and was emotionally moving. 3 stars for writing, 4 stars for the reading experience journey.
