As a retired pediatric nurse, I'm always interested in how families deal with chronic or terminal illness; I appreciate the insight that this type of book normally provides. However, My Emily seems more a rambling treatise by a confused and freshly grieving father who hasn't yet clarified his child's life and death in his own mind.
I listened to this book twice before reviewing it, and the best description I can give is that is akin to happening upon a journal entry never meant to be read by anyone other than the author. We learn little about Emily herself, and never really become emotionally invested in her or her story.
I sympathize with her parents on the loss of their daughter, and hope that Emily's dad found some comfort in writing this memoir--but I cannot recommend it.
