Rowing Lesson by Anne Landsman.

On the surface, The Rowing Lesson tells the life story of Harold Klein, a Jewish physician who made his life and living in a Boer community in rural South Africa, now lying comatose on his deathbed. Beneath -- as the metaphorical oars of his daughter Betsy's thoughts dip in and stir the waters of his experience -- is something much more complex. Over the course of several days' vigil by his silent side, Betsy's mind races across vignettes of family events that she's reconstructed from his stories, her memory, and her imagination, gliding ever closer to understanding this irascible man she has come to adore.
