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.

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.

I downloaded this book thinking I would have it to read at a doctor's appointment scheduled for the next day. Just to get an idea of the flavor of the book, I decided to read the first few pages. Carol's writing style and the content of the book were so captivating that I could not stop reading. It is beyond comprehension that Carol was able to traverse this experience yet maintain her faith, sanity, and equanimity. Her book not only provides insight into a mysterious disease, but also provides suggestions that are applicable to a buffet of life experiences.

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.
