A very disturbing subject makes for a disturbing read but a MUST read. Understanding the journey of this amazing woman is given to us with beauty, humour, sensitivity, & honesty. Dementia is feared and misunderstood. This book will open your mind and your heart!
~ I couldn't put it down once started.
~ I found myself fearfully comparing my short-term memory lapses with Lydia's.
~ I felt that I was given a glimpse into how families of Alzheimer patients live with wondering if they will be afflicted.
~ I was left deeply affected & unable to read anything else for several days & my family doesn't even have a history of this!
Today I put this subject away with gentleness and move on to lighter stories.
