I was drawn to Living With Alzheimer's: A Love Story by its beautiful cover. Robin Thompson, the author, agreed to write a featured post for AlzAuthors. This book is well worth the read if you are a spouse caregiver.

It’s difficult to convey the sense of bewilderment and sometimes hopelessness that you feel when caring for a person living with Alzheimer's, without appearing negative or self-pitying. But on the other side, the most remarkable thing for me was my experience of Shoko’s love and affection, even when her understanding was becoming more and more confused.
