At first, I was reluctant to read this new novel by Mr. Fischer since my dad is suffering from Alzheimer’s, and I was afraid it might be too painful. Well, I’m glad I read it. It was a realistic and heartwarming story about love, loyalty, and family bonds. I found myself rooting for Hanna — the protagonist — whose mother was drawn, day by day, into the world of this frightening disease. All members of the family, though, were just as interesting as each one of them, in their own way, tried to make amends and adjust to the new environment and role shifting. I highly recommend this wonderful tribute to a brave woman and all our loved ones who suffer from this devastating disease.
