Review

"Hoagland's story reminds us that everyday heroes are found in the home."
--Vicki Hunt Budge, Author of Intercession

About the Author

When Maria Hoagland is not writing, she can be found walking barefoot in soft grass, remodeling houses with her husband, and enjoying campfires with their three children. She loves crunching leaves in the fall, stealing cookie dough from the mixing bowl, and listening to musicals on her iPod. Maria earned her degree at Brigham Young University, and although she adores mountain resorts near her Idaho home, she is no longer a fan of ice skating.

This is the first of Maria's books I have reviewed. It took me a while to get used to reading a book written in first person. In the end though, I felt like I could connect with the characters and the story well. 'Aly' was one brave woman to tackle taking care teenagers and her mother-in-law at the same time. It was nice to read that she had the same feelings and thoughts I would have had in those situations. She was far more patient than I would have been though. My favorite line from the book was, "If you let the Lord write the story of your mission, it will be a story worth telling." In the book they were talking about serving an LDS mission but I think that applies to life as well. If we dedicate our lives to the Lord our story will be a great one! I love discovering new Authors. I own Maria's other books as well and look forward to reading them soon!

LDS Women’s Fiction. The characters seemed so genuine to me as I read this story. I swear they could have been my next door neighbors, they were so real. This is a well-edited book about Alzheimer’s, hording, moms of missionaries, moving, taking care of the elderly, and fitting in at school. It follows the life of Alyssa who is juggling family, caregiving of her mother-in-law, finding her niche in a new town and neighborhood, and keeping her sanity. Time doesn’t allow her to be everything to everybody, but she works with the time she has and does a pretty dang good job. I really liked the characters in this book. The story is different than any other I’ve read, but was well worth my time and worth reading. I highly recommend, especially if you want to know more about dealing with someone with Alzheimer’s. The author did a great job delving into that subject and many others.

PHENOMENAL WRITING!
You are quickly pulled into the story...wanting to know what happens next!

In life we have a beginning time, a middle time, and an end time..

It is in the middle time that Alyssa finds herself now...

The middle time of life....

AND the middle time of care-giving...

Still taking care of her children...and now taking care of her parent (her mother-in-law)

Life gets even crazier as she finds that her son is struggling, and she has to move her family to a new state with new schools, and her mother-in-law is showing signs of dementia and Alzheimer disease.

Wishing she could go back to a simpler time...

She realizes that this is her time to truly take care of her family...immediate and extended.

But that doesn't make this time and easy time.

Journey with Alyssa as she takes the time to anguish with the "pain of a missionary son who is questioning, a young teen who is being bullied, a daughter who is distant, a husband who is struggling, and a mother-in-law who is now hoarding and forgetting."

Is there 'STILL TIME' to keep everything "from falling apart?"

A FANTASTIC READ!
You will chuckle, weep, and rejoice with Alyssa and her family.

I want to start by saying I really loved the titles of the chapters in this book, each a phrase about time, so clever! I love the characters in this book, Alyssa, or Aly, is really an amazing woman, willing to do what she knows that she needs to do for the woman who raised her son and she herself had called mom for many years. I really enjoyed the peeks into Ruth's mind as well, even though she was confused about the people and world around her. I can't imagine having to do what Aly had to, give up her whole life and move into Ruth's home to care for her day after day. All the worry and all the rejection when Ruth doesn't recognize her or her kids. There's also Aly's concern for her children one barely on a mission, one uprooted in her difficult high school years, and one as a junior high boy. I loved each of her children and rooted for them in the good times and bad. Maria Hoagland is a master at crafting characters that you care about in situations that feel real. This is a fun book that you won't want to miss!

This book was not what I expected; it was so much more! Although my children are still very young, I was still able to relate to Alyssa and her everyday struggles. I loved watching how she and her family grew and developed throughout the story. I was honestly sad when the book ended, because I wanted more. I wanted to know what was next for each character.

The first time the chapter switched point of view, I was admittedly turned off by it. I was comfortable being inside Alyssa's head. But as soon as I got used to hearing Ruth's thoughts, it took the book to a whole new level! And now I realize the story would not be nearly as good without it. I thought Hoagland did a phenomenal job describing the confusion and frustration of being a woman with dementia and Alzheimer's. The chapters told from her mother-in-law's point of view were so emotional and raw, I truly felt for her! This book was emotional and powerful! A fantastic read for any LDS woman who is struggling with anything in her life. Oh wait, that's all of us!

I loved reading this book. Being in a situation where my own mom has dementia it's nice to read about a character experiencing some of the same things. Her relationships with her husband and children feel very real. I was sad that she blamed herself for so much, but can empathize with that as well. It's hard to know that even when you do your best others in your life will have their own struggles they must face on their own.
