Book 2 in this series by author RJ Thesman is just as captivating as Book 1 (“The Unraveling of Reverend G”). Thesman has an ability to make the story flow so easily that it encourages you to stay put in your reading chair without interruption. It is pure reading pleasure, despite the difficult topic.
In “Intermission for Reverend G,” the retired minister with Alzheimers slowly progresses into more confusion, yet she continues to cling to her God and her love for her family and precious friends. She struggles—yet the Lord continues to use her to help others.
The author captures the thoughts of Reverend G with believability and sensitivity. The story, portrayed through the eyes of a woman with dementia, stirs one’s understanding of the thought processes as well as compassion for the pain of losing one’s memory. It is a journey filled with hope, joy and sadness, captured beautifully in “Intermission for Reverend G.” I look forward to Book 3.
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.
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.
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.
