My wife has recently been admitted into the Alzheimer’s unit where the author of this book is the charge nurse. In amazing detail she paints a realistic picture of residents and staff who occupy such a unit. She opens a window into this dreadful disease by showing real life experiences of a mother and daughters struggle to understand and cope with it. The author has an amazing insight into this disease. I highly recommend this novel to anyone who has a loved one with Alzheimer’s. I wept, cried, and even laughed at times though out the book. A must read.
