FLY WHILE YOU STILL HAVE WINGS
And other lessons my resilient mother taught me
Joyce Rupp

In this heartfelt memoir about her mother Hilda’s final years, Joyce Rupp shares the lessons her mother taught her.  As a poor farmer’s wife and the mother of eight living on rented land in Maryhill, Hilda lived a life of hard labor and constant responsibility—from milking cows and raising chickens to keeping the farm’s financial ledger. Rupp shows how the difficulties of her mother’s early years and family life, including the loss of a twenty-three-year-old son, forged a resilience that guided her through the illnesses and losses she faced in later years. This affectionate profile of their relationship is, at the same time, an honest self-examination, as Rupp shares the ways she sometimes failed to listen to, accept, and understand her mother in her final years.
