That said, You are the Best Medicine was written from a mother to a child. The mother is undergoing treatment for breast cancer. The text is delivered as a wish for the child to understand and find comfort in the strength her love gives her mother.
The story is told in the future perfect tense, which is in and of itself unconventional, and the affect is a feeling that the parent is looking out for the child beyond the parent's own suffering.
It's incredibly moving.
I'm glad that this book found me.
