This is a beautiful love story, as well as an insightful story for any caregiver of an Alzheimer's patient, by a man in his 70's dealing with his wife's illness. He describes the numerous frustrations and inadequacies of the medical establishment, as well as the practical aspects of how to deal with this very sad condition. An extraordinary journey by a wonderful writer. ~ Reviewed by Barbara Morrow
