By Cooler by the Lake TOP 1000 REVIEWER on October 26, 2011
Format: Hardcover
I will start by saying that this story is written with such emotion, compassion, and true-to-life feeling that you can't help but feel like you are walking in the shoes of the main characters.

The book tells one story through the eyes of two main characters. It begins with the setting of a nursing home on Christmas Eve. The story from the viewpoint of Alzheimer patient Mitch is like watching the surroundings through his eyes, feeling what he feels. He has broken memories of his past, of his wife whom he "loved and loathed." He waits for someone or something, but he doesn't know for whom or what. At one heart-wrenching moment, he holds a glittery paper snowflake and knows that for a while at least, the little girl in his memory loved him. He struggles with bits of memory of ways that he failed his little girl, realizing that "there are sins of omission as surely as there are sins of commission" and ponders whether if he had held her more and worked less, maybe everything would have been different.

This old man's thoughts are things we can take to heart, lessons we can learn while there is still time. This is so genuinely written that it's hard to believe that the person writing it hasn't experienced what it is like to have Alzheimers, though of course that would be impossible. I came away from reading this part with much more compassion for what an impaired memory patient might be going through.

The second viewpoint is told through the story of an abused woman, Rachel, who appears to have the idyllic life. The story is set in a small town and consists of a time period of about two months leading up to Christmas Eve.

Rachel recounts the emotional and verbal abuse doled out by her alcoholic mother.

I just finished reading Snow Angel. It touched so many feelings. Being at one time a little girl and having a somewhat disturbed home life I could relate with this one.
This shows love is deep and when you think others do not care sometimes we just don't know how deeply they do care. This book touched me in so many ways. It is a wonderful story of finding of one's self and how you affect others. Even when all seems lost it is not always. There can be pain and also redemption. As long as one is alive it is never too late.
I loved the book and would give it a 5 star rating. Do have tissues close.

I grew up in a not so loving home and have been trying to make a happy home ever since. I can't even describe how I feel now after reading this story. I totally relate to Rachel the main character. She grew up with no defending her from her mother who abused her and ended up in an abusive marriage. I too never had any one to defend me. No one who ever stood up for me. No one knows how that feels unless you have gone through it. This is a story from the heart. It touched mine deeply. I am not sure what I will do with the emotions it has opened in me but I will figure it out one day at a time just like Rachel did. One of the best books I have read in my life and I am sure I will be reading it many, many more times.

This book made me cry. Have plenty of tissue ready. Glenn Beck gives one of the most honest and open stories on the subject matter that I have ever read. This would be a great book to read with others.

This is the first time I have read a book that invokes some real sympathizing emotion. I have never read a book of this genre but I must say that it was well written and kept me reading. The story development and situations truly made me feel for the protagonist, Rachel. The descriptions of the circumstances and situations are so well illustrated that I am able to put myself in Rachel's shoes that I wish I could reach out to help her. She is placed into a position where she has become slowly imprisoned in her own life that it has become the norm. The other perspective character of the story is Mitch. The way Mitch's world is described is fascinating as it emits a fractured reality based on shards of memories. The sequences of the story invoke a range of different emotions from beginning to end. I read this book in two days because I was eager to see what would happen. Read this book, you won't be disappointed.

what a wonderful book. I would recommend it to anyone who has a family member with alzheimer, comes from a dysfunctional family, and/or is in an abusive relationship. The book really hit some spots in my heart that I thought were long gone and buried. The book helped me understand the abuse I received as a child and the way I treated my oldest daughter. Even though we are the best of friends now I know that I too have left hurts in her heart. The book is wonderful and I highly recommend it. I will be buying this book for gifts to give to family and friends.

Read this in one sitting, loved it. Having come from verbally abusive home (verbal abuse from my mom)and later caring for my Dad with alzheimer, Glenn and Nicole really nailed it. The coming and going of the memories of the Mitch brought back so many memories of my Dad and his fight. Alzheimer sufferers live in the bits and pieces of the past the present is nothing but a murky day dream. Not having suffered any physical abuse it, made me angry that Rachel couldn't be DONE. However, the love of others that come into her life helps her realizes she is of worth and move forward. The guardian angel that Mitch has is also moving. This is definitely written in woman voice. Highly recommend.
