Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought I would play for fun! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Caring for someone with dementia or Alzheimer's takes a ghastly toll on even the best family relationships.

How is is possible to lose a loved one while he or she is still living, still sitting right in front of you, talking with you, smiling at you-and yet the person you have known and loved for years is somehow gone? You observe the subtle quirks and idiosyncrasies that are occurring with ever-increasing frequency, yet you are oblivious to the truth-that you are not dealing with the obstinacies or unintentional offenses of an elderly person; you are facing a devastating disease and posses few tools with which to fight it.
