The Middle Place
Author: Kelly Corrigan
The Middle Place is about calling home. Instinctively. Even when all the paperwork -- a marriage license, a notarized deed, two birth certificates, and seven years of tax returns -- clearly indicates you're an adult, but all the same, there you are, clutching the phone and thanking God that you're still somebody's daughter. ...  more »

I absolutely loved this book. I was captivated by the back cover and the lady at the book store, told me she just read it. I found out when I went to pay for it, that it was about a womans struggle with cancer and I wasn't so sure I wanted to buy it, but I had heard how wonderful it was. I am SO glad that I bought it. It was a wonderful read and it wasn't the least bit down, like I thought it was going to be. It was well worth the money I had to pay for it. I highly reccomend this book.

I read this book in a day and a half, and laughed and cried my way through it. Keely Corrgian writes her memoir with honesty, integrity and humor. At the end I found myself wanting to know more about her and her family, she seems like the type of person you could sit and have coffee with and talk for hours. I loved the book and highly recommend it!

Kelly Corrigan and I have many things in common. First, we are Irish American girls raised in a Catholic family. She has 2 older brothers and I have 2 older brothers. Most importantly, we are both breast cancer survivors. Her story is very similar to mine in so many ways. Kelly loves her Dad very, very much. I am also fortunate enough to still have my Dad on this earth, and I indeed love him very much!

Kelly's story is a tale of love and survival. Once I started this book, I couldn't put it down. I read it while on vacation. It was a pick-me-up, not a bring-me-down. It's a story I will never forget!

Great book about being a daughter and a mother at the same time. Kelly writes in such a familiar voice that it's hard to put this book down!

I like Kelly's writing style, it is like talking to a good friend over a few drinks. the story is sweet/sad, but ultimately happy. i could not relate to a lot of the things she writes about, she certainly is 'daddy's little girl' which i am most def. not.. but there are other parts of the book which i completely related to. i would recommend this book to anyone.

This was a really wonderful book to read. What excellent writing. It is a book about a family dealing with cancer in TWO of its members, but this book is not a downer. You just want to call the protaganist up when you read the last page and get to know her and her family, especially her dad, even better. Great insight into what a life dealing with cancer is all about, but also just an awesome story.
