In the 2012 memoir The Cost of Hope, Amanda Bennett writes about life, love and death as she experienced them in her marriage to her late husband Terence Foley.  Recollections of their first meeting in China, stories of raising children and growing careers – the normal things in marriage – are counterbalanced by her story of her husband’s long-term struggle with illness and the confusing system of healthcare they encountered.  The Cost of Hope has been described as a thought-provoking, affecting memoir by a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist.  Bernardsville Library’s book group, Memoirs and Coffee, will discuss this new memoir on Tuesday, April 23, at 10:30.  Copies of the book are available at the circulation desk, and new members are always invited to attend the discussions.
