The power of positivity, the reality of science, and the troubles with bureaucracy all come into play in this heart wrenching story riddled with unexpected life turns.
In this book, the author shares the journey of her sister, Diane, thrown into the trenches of dealing with early onset Alzheimer's disease...as life went on.

Our family has experience with Alzheimer's and dementia. They are complex, life-altering diseases with much that science and medicine have yet to untangle. For the families, it is disheartening, scary and threatening to the strength of their love and the power of their memories. Sometimes, there is guilt as life for you goes on, especially as they grow farther and farther away from who they used to be.
The author does a great job, with humor and candor, of sharing this true story while keeping a positive mindset. It has just the right amount of personality to draw you in and make you feel like you are there; rooting for the Farley sisters and joining with the author in the quest to champion for her sister.
If you find yourself in a similar situation or want to better understand someone who is coping with a friend or loved one with Alzheimer's, this book will bring you into the lives of an engaging family with a beautiful sisterly bond.

We also sent a copy to a family member, who paid for their own book, but does not have a computer. Amazon's rules would not let us submit a separate review:

I could relate to this. My husband had Alzheimer's, although not early onset, and went through a lot of the same struggles and medication. This was a beautiful, easy-to-read story of a sister's devotion and love.

I loved this book for many reasons. I know the author well and have fond memories of all her family. She brings up so many controversial topics that introduce new dialogue to our daily lives. I too, have struggled with a medical system that is corrupt and inefficient. Pharmaceutical companies and doctors are making money off of people's miseries and confusion as to what to do for their loved ones. We all need to get educated and stop the madness.
I am astounded by the strength and perseverance Renae had and continues to have in her life. She is a role model for all of us and she has opened the gates for some heavy discussions about life and death. Kudos to her and her soul mate, RJ!

Format: Kindle Edition
Though Renae Farley, a successful interior designer, has not written before, the quality of communication in this her first book suggests that she may seek to explore other topics to share with the reading public. Her writing is conversational in manner, warmly credible, accurate, and insightful and is bound to benefit others who are dealing with the presence of a family member or close friend with Alzheimer’s disease.

Farley’s book surveys the six-year battle with early onset Alzheimer's disease that her older sister Diane faced starting at the age of 49. Though Alzheimer’s disease is frighteningly prevalent in older people in this country the early onset form is becoming more noticed. Hopefully with this memoir more people will become aware of the early signs, seek able assistance form physicians who actually understand this variable, and learn the steps from initial subtle manifestations to the final stages of this poorly understood plague. Renae Farley takes us through these steps, sharing the subtleties of the early form as observed in her beloved sister, the struggles with the medical profession, the subsequent finding of suitable shelter for Diane as the disease advanced, and all the other associated heartbreaking tasks that caretakers must assume.

For anyone who is dealing with a loved one with Alzheimer's disease, this is a must read! And for those who aren't, but enjoy a great love story, this is for you! Although the author believes she wrote the book about her sister's last great love while in the downward spiral of Alzheimer's disease, I found it to be an amazing love story about a sister who would do anything to help her "big" sister fight this terrible disease with dignity and grace.

An amazing story of love, generosity and total caring of one sister for another. Renae did everything right! I learned so much about the disease, but more importantly about how determined and diligent this love was manifested in the way the author researched, studied, and worked so hard to find the Happy Ending.
The book is written in an interesting style, with good information, but the compassion and caring comes through, and keeps the reader involved and wanting the same happy ending. Congratulations, Renae - a great book, and a must read.

More About the Author

As a first time author, I am very excited to release my book which is the story of my dear friend and beloved sister Diane and her 6 year battle with early onset Alzheimer's Disease starting at the age of 49.

As an interior design for the last 30 year in San Diego California, I was not equipped with the skills for what was to become my new life. I hope it will show that anything is possible and there is always a silver lining in any story. It is a journey that we took together that a lot of you will experience if you haven't already.

I hope you enjoy it and are able to use it as a tool if you are ever sent down this same path.

Thank you so much for reading our story!

Renae Farley
