From the Author
I couldn't find the book that I needed to read... so I wrote one.
From the Back Cover
"It was a topsy-turvy place of secrets and discovery where I often found myself inside the mirror of dementia. Its reverse-ness showed me the other side of everything and the other side of myself. I learned to see my mother with eyes opend and not curtained my her motherhood."

The bravery here - is in revealing, not only the pain involved in losing a parent in this manner but, also, the joys in sometimes entering their new world - to journey with them. It tells us that even in cold darkness, shafts of brilliant light can penetrate and warm.
And, after all, as in the oft quoted line from Jane Wagner's THE SEARCH FOR INTELLIGENT LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE - "Reality is nothing but a collective hunch":
I started reading and waited patiently to get bored with scientific facts about dementia. That never happened. I came for information on the topic and I stayed for a great experience in literature. That means the writing is fine. Really fine. Various genres of writing that look like memoir interweave with other genres.
As my entire family ages in unison I think more and more about our history and our present and our future. The story told here of a daughter and her mother going through a late in life experience the turns everything upside down and changes lives gripped me from beginning to end. It even changed my life. I think differently now about what Suzka traveled through and what I am traveling through.
The best books are the ones that change your life.
