Editorial Reviews

Review

"Trampling downhill into what seems like oblivion is a daunting task. Reverend G, an unwilling and necessarily inconsistent narrator, journeys with Alzheimer's as it steals her memories, her dignity and ultimately, her Self. RJ Thesman elegantly describes this painful journey, reminding your own Self of who you are, and maybe, what you are not." - Dan T. Davis, author of "The Blacksmith's Gift," "An Orphan's Promise," and "A Carpenter's Legacy," award winning Christmas stories.

From the Author

Even as my mother experienced her own intermission into Alzheimer's, I began to delve into how Reverend G might react to this particular plateau. By naming her disease, Reverend G devised an easier way to hate what was happening to her while still living in grace. Playing with the idea of a love interest kept the story from bogging down into the depths of what Alzheimer's can do. I really liked writing this one. I hope you enjoy reading it.

Format: Paperback
Intermission for Reverend G continues the story of a woman pastor with the diagnosis of Alzheimer's. The characters of the first book in the Cove Creek series, The Unraveling of Reverend G, become stronger as their lives continue to intertwine in the assisted living facility. Reverend G finds purpose in reaching out to them, all the while wondering if she will remember their individual personalities. She fears forgetting those closest to her--her dear son, his wife who is expecting her first grandchild, and her boyfriend. Most of all, she fears losing her connection with God, whom she has faithfully loved and served all her life.

This story gives insight into the impact of the Alzheimer's disease process. RJ Thesman writes from personal experience of dealing with a family member with the disease.

I was drawn into the story and got to love the characters. I felt the tension of Rev G's fears and the reality in which she lives, while also seeing her continued compassion for those around her.

Intermission for Reverend G is a gripping story with insight, compassion and faith.

Some of our best examples of how to live can be found between the pages of a book. And so it is with Reverend G. With a failing memory and a longing to hear her Father’s voice, Reverend G faces the onslaught of Alzheimer’s with grace and determination to not let this disease steal the enjoyment she can still have in life.

Whatever this disease is taking from her, she is still the Reverend and you see that in everything she does and says. In the middle of her own questions, doubts and fears, Reverend G still loves and serves all those around her. A shining example of facing the later years of life with courage.

RJ Thesman has done a fantastic job in Intermission for Reverend G of painting a picture of hope and courage for anyone looking toward the later years of one’s own life or that of a loved one. Well worth the time to read.

Intermission for Reverend G continues where The Unraveling of Reverend G left off. It truly brings the reader into the heart and mind of a person diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I love how Reverend G gives a name to Alzheimer's and talks to it telling it how much she dislikes it. Working in a retirement community for several years I was able to identify with many of the characters in this story. The wedding at the end was simply beautiful. I would certainly recommend the Reverend G books to anyone who wants to understand their loved one better who suffers with Alzheimer's.

Rebecca Thesman has shown the reader what living the reality of a fading memory is like with her character Reverend G. A story both scary and amusing, Reverend G lives knowing her memory issues will only get worse and someday she will not remember God or the Holy Scriptures.

She bravely trudges through life and it’s challenges and as I read, Reverend G became my friend. I cried when she faced difficult life situations, I laughed when she explains gracefully: “Oh Well, my memory is not what it used to be.”

If anyone is looking for a book on age-related dementia, or specifically Alzheimer’s disease this is a novel worth a read. It reminded me of my mother’s dementia during the last five years of her life.

Although it is the second book in the Reverend G series, it can be read alone. Thesman brings out the ugliness of Alzheimer’s by giving the disease a name, thus making it a personality the reader can hate as it ravages the memory of Reverend G's brain.

I fell in love with her quirky family, a son, daughter-in-love, and fiancé Chris. And as for the residents of Cove Creek Care Center, who live and work around Reverend G, they bring an understanding to what it might look like to move to such a place. When they all attend a wedding for Reverend G and Chris the results are magical.

If anyone can say what aging gracefully with a horrific disease is like, it would be Reverend G as portrayed by Thesman.

This book picked right up where we last left Reverend G, in the middle of her struggle with Alzheimer's. This book was another easy read with deep, thoughtful themes running through it. In this book we get a deeper look at the struggle Alzheimer's causes for loved ones, and the strategy of speaking truth into your emotion. There is also points of how the medical profession treats patients with memory issues, and the development of the stages of living with Alzheimer's. The main theme that I took away from this book is that God never stops loving us, and that's a theme I think we can't hear too often!

I just finished Intermission for Reverend G by RJ Thesman last week and was so glad to again spend time with the characters. While reading the book and since I have been much more aware of praying for my mother-in-law as she lives with memory issues. An enjoyable book despite the serious subject, just as the characters enjoy life and live with God during serious times as well as joyful times. Also, the book gives much to think about as I age and those around me age. Thank You, Rebecca. I am eagerly awaiting the next book.

Format: Paperback
Reverend G is a sixty-something woman minister now living in Cove Creek assisted living facility. Alzheimer’s has forced Rev G to step down from the pulpit long before she was ready, but now—often without remembering—she ministers to the residents of Cove Creek.

Rev G daily faces the issues of Alzheimer’s, but most of all battles her fear of forgetting her son and losing her connection with God as the tendrils of the disease invade her brain. Her boyfriend Chris, her son and daughter-in-law, and the staff of Cove Creek provide a strong support.

With each page I came to know Rev G and the other Cove Creek residents. From Rev G’s joy of serving God to her little quirks of character that irritated me, to Edith who watches each day for her family to visit, to Bert with his own little garden at Cove Creek, to mean-tempered Charlotte, I was hypnotized.

Perhaps it’s because I’m nearing 60 myself or because my own mother is almost 90, but I identified with this story. I’ve grown to love Rev G and the other residents as though they were real people—that’s how real these characters are and how well RJ Thesman presents the realities of Alzheimer’s and life in assisted living!

Thesman hits a homerun (again) with this second installment of the Cove Creek series. She pulled me into the story so deeply I found myself battling tears of sadness and tears of joy with each turn of the page because these characters became my friends. I got goose bumps as God’s miracles unfolded. And I came out with a much better understanding of the details and difficulties of Alzheimer’s.

Whether you know someone battling this disease or not, this is a bittersweet story you will enjoy!
