Reviews

Praise for"They Left Us Everything
"
["They Left Us Everything"] is the kind of slim, unassuming memoir that hits you deep in the gut . . . Amid the scraps of paper left in jacket pockets, family photos and pieces of furniture, part of the everything our parents leave us with are our memories of them, good and bad. Perhaps figuring out what to do with them is as close to a manual for grief as we get. "National Post
"
Johnson writes with clarity, wit and a powerful descriptive voice that makes the rambling family home she moves back into for 16 weeks a character in itself. "NOW Toronto
"
A fascinating and delightful story a satisfying and thought-provoking book. "The Parry Sound North Star
"
Each word of"They Left Us Everything"is heartfelt and moving. We are privy to Johnson s emotional journey to the point that it feels like she is part of our own family. Her story lingers inside, touching the soul. "newz4u.net
"
At times heartbreaking and at others hysterically funny . . . the book s descriptive prose brings [the] places and people to life and poignantly conveys the quasi-spiritual journey that helps Johnson overcome her grief. "Publishers Weekly
"
[Johnson] takes you along on a journey that is emotional, humorous, and candid. Newstalk 1010"
