The Last Days of Wonder

Mother is dying, and there ain't a damn thing her daughters, Sue and Imogen, can do about it. Imogen, in her flighty way, can accept this, but Sue has always been closer to Mother, and isn't letting her mom give up without a fight. But in truth, Sue is too distressed to understand what might be best for the ill woman, so it's up to Mother to teach some final lessons to ease Sue along the path to acceptance.
