The story grabs you and won’t let go.
The author is not only a skillful, descriptive writer but one with first hand knowledge of the effects of Alzheimer’s disease on both patient and family by serving as a compassionate, caring charge nurse at an Alzheimer’s facility.

I couldn’t put it down – read When Color Fades ’till I’d finished it – at after 3 a.m. It’s an ultimate mystery/thriller! Yet an extraordinary family saga as well, that celebrates a daughter’s unconditional love for her demanding mother who’s devoured by early onset Alzheimer’s Disease. When Color Fades is a must read!
