The Last Strawberry - Sale!

By Rita Swan

When Matthew's left leg continued to crumple underneath him over a period of weeks, his parents called their Christian Science practitioner for 'metaphysical treatment'—a type of argumentative prayer that, according to the church dictates, could not be combined with medicine. Fifteen-month-old Matthew became violently ill, but a series of practitioners claimed their treatments were working and the healing would be evident when his parents overcame their own fears. In this unflinching memoir, Rita Swan describes this struggle from a mother's viewpoint. Told largely through dialogue and eschewing arid sentimentality, The Last Strawberry lays bare the inexplicable.
