Intermission For Reverend G

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.

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.

I do not usually read follow ups, but this was very good. The subject is so dear as both my parents nave Alzheimer's and are is assisted living now. They have no idea though that they have it. This story is beautuful, heart stirring and a real look into the mind of this awful disease.

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.

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.

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.
