WOW!!! Where to begin...If this was just a book about loosing someone you love to dementia, I probably would have given it 4 stars. But there are so many layers to this book that is going to make it unforgetable(pardon the pun) I came away from this book with a greater respect for the people who have not lost their ability to remember those they love. Such a horrible disease for the person whose mind is taken away but in my opinion a worse disease for the ones left behind having to retell events take were painful the first time they were told and having to remind someone that they loved you. This would be a great book for caregivers to read to understand that the patient that just bit you isn't really even seeing you. This book shows the power of love and the mind ability to protect those we love.
