The Last Visit

Winner of the Honorable Mention Award in the 2011 Warren Adler Short Story Contest, “The Last Visit” is based on the author’s final visit with her 92-year-old father in hospice care.

An excerpt from the author’s memoir, “The Box of Daughter,” follows the story. After growing up in a dysfunctional family and caregiving for her elderly parents for more than seven years, the author set foot on a quest to raise her self-esteem, overcome her negative conditioning, and create a life that is truly her own.

“Fresh, bold, and inspiring.”
—Examiner.com

“A testament to the merit of psychological healing through the understanding and expression of feelings. Full of stark realities of abuse but also the hopefulness of healing, Mayfield’s memoir provides helpful insight to those facing similar struggles.”
—Kirkus Reviews

Katherine Mayfield is the author of “The Box of Daughter: Overcoming a Legacy of Emotional Abuse,” “Acting A to Z,” “Smart Actors, Foolish Choices,” and “The Box of Daughter and Other Poems.”
