Book Description

July 26, 2010 1449702147 978-1449702144
Carol Pendergrass's husband of eighteen years is swiftly sinking into the depths of dementia, experiencing hallucinations, delusions, and psychosis. As she becomes lost within his madness, his adult children take him from their home and wage a terrifying war against her. Taking possession of their assets, her husband's family files numerous lawsuits against her, including a civil suit, claiming that she not only caused her husband's illness but that she attempted to kill him.

In this gut-wrenching memoir, Carol describes her husband's dementia openly and honestly. As she faces the onslaught of lawsuits, false accusations, separations, and great personal loss, she refuses to give up her rightful place beside her husband, and fights to maintain their love, honor, and dignity.

Gone Mad questions whether our laws really uphold the sanctity of marriage.

Through her journey, Carol learned that there were ways to protect herself and her assets against outside forces, and shares this knowledge in Gone Mad. Her hope for this book is for you to know that God truly can take "what was meant for evil and turn it for good" (Genesis 50:20).

5.0 out of 5 stars Gone Mad (review by friend in IA) September 9, 2010
Format:Paperback
Just finished reading Carol's book and I simply could not put it down. It is a very interesting read. Her style is captivating and should serve as a great resource for anyone up against a situation like she described. I found it both education and helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spellbinding! May 24, 2012
Format:Paperback
A modern horror story. But also, a thorough picture of the progress of Lewy body dementia, and the way, if exaggerated, that blended family members often act with this disorder. The author adds a long list of legal tasks that every LBD couple should do as early in the disease as possible. Even if the book weren't as interesting to read as it is, it would be worth buying because of this list. This book is a good addition to our LBD library. We recommend it as a book that all family members and friends of anyone with Lewy body dementia should read.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've gone mad too September 15, 2010
By MaryKS
Format:Paperback
I laughed and cried with the author through this fabulous book. It is heart-rending, but she manages to inject humor in her story.Make no mistake, it is definately a modern tragedy. How many more families will experience this, or similar? But be warned...you'll learn many factoids reading this book. It's an education in law, health, and coping with the bumps in life.
