"Powerful memoir of love, aging, and rediscovery."-The Sacramento Book Review
If you are a fan of long goodbyes and movies such as The Notebook, or if you have had to care for an elderly parent, this is exactly what you are looking for. Just remember to bring along some tissues for the ending. I cried like a baby.
From the Author
It was tough writing this book, but I loved every minute of it! I loved it because it felt like mom was beside me throughout the process. There were lots of times that I found my eyes welling up with tears as I wrote the story. As much as I cried, I laughed too. It was a healing process for me, a way through the trauma of losing mom again, after finding her in our journey together. It is a promise fulfilled, to get her story out, and mine, so that no one will have to go through what we did. Now, the promise is to help the over 5 million people confronting Alzheimers every day, and the close to 11 million unpaid caregivers who are affected by the disease. 50% of the proceeds from the sale of this book is going to The Julita Memorial Foundation to give aid to family caregivers with loved ones suffering from Alzheimers and dementia. I hope that you enjoy Julita's Sands: A Memoir as much as I enjoyed writing it. --Reliving the experience again
