Praise

“This is Berg’s loving portrait of her family over time, and a bracingly honest exploration of the emotions that arise when caring for aging parents.”—Real Simple 
  
“[Berg] writes poignantly about her aging parents and the power of connection through the years in this compelling narrative.”—Good Morning America

“Elizabeth Berg’s poignantly rendered Ill Be Seeing You shares with readers a story that is both highly personal and universally applicable. In bearing witness to her parents’s diminishing lives, and to the challenges these ‘setting suns’ present to their loving but taxed middle-aged children, Berg delivers a bittersweet account that is sad, loving, and completely authentic. Ill Be Seeing You moved me and broadened my understanding of the human condition.”—Wally Lamb, author of I Know This Much Is True

“With her trademark compassion, humor, affirmation, and grace, Elizabeth Berg renders her own family’s experience in such a natural and bountiful way that it connects seamlessly to the reader’s own. It pierces, this book, in all the right places.”—Jessica Treadway, author of The Gretchen Question   
 
“‘It’s hard to know how to rescue someone. It’s hard to know how to help them in the way they need to be helped.’ With honesty and tenderness, Elizabeth Berg confronts the grief, frustration, and pain of seeing her parents through the difficult changes of aging. Ill Be Seeing You is brave, sweet, angry, loving, unbearable, and absolutely necessary.”—Stewart ONan, author of Emily, Alone and Henry, Himself

“Elizabeth Berg’s brave and beautiful memoir is proof that the heart, like a bone, can be broken and heal stronger. Unflinchingly honest, Berg walks into the tangled forest of sorrow and frustration familiar to anyone who’s had to contend with the end of their parents’s lives, and emerges with the understanding that love and loss are the two sides of any life well lived. You close this book reminded of our common humanity. The effect, which lingers, is something very much like grace.”—Mark Slouka, author of Lost Lake and Essays from the Nick of Time

“Berg’s fans will be touched by her disclosures, and readers caring for an aging parent will see themselves in Berg’s painfully honest, beautifully written account, and be comforted by her insights.”—Booklist (stared review) 

“Berg eloquently explores the pain of realizing one’s parents are in their declining years. . . . This bittersweet, touching story will particularly resonate with those caring for older parents.”—Publishers Weekly 

“Readers familiar with Berg’s novels know that her stories wonderfully encompass the comforts of beauty and wry humor, but they never sugarcoat life’s hard truths. The same is true of I’ll Be Seeing You, which mines the wisdom hidden in difficult times.”BookPage
