ABOUT THE BOOKEleanor Elliot arises one morning to find her name in the obituary column. Shocked at the news, but appalled at the short summary of her nearly eighty years, she vows to rewrite it.In preparation, she relives her life, recalling her family, the husband and children who sustained her and a friendship that lasted a lifetime. She reviews the decades of momentous change through which she lived.The Revision is about life as most of us live it, one day at a time. Most of those days are much like every other. Some are highlights and become the benchmarks against which we measure other events.
Others are sad, if not tragic, and forever clutch at our throats. Taken together, they become our life, which can not be reduced to a few paragraphs.Given EleanorÍs opportunity, what would you write?
