My guest today is Susan Avitzour, whose book "And Twice the Marrow of Her Bones" is a tribute to her eighteen-year-old daughter Timora who died of leukemia in 2001. The book is a memoir of my journey with her while she was ill, then without her after she left this world.

"While focusing on the author's deeply Jewish experience and perspective, And Twice the Marrow of Her Bones is inspiring to people of all faiths, or none. A must-read for both my Jewish and Christian students and colleagues."
