February - April, 2012

"Rising Star Award" given by the publisher iUniverse.

"Editor"s Choice Award" given by the publisher iUniverse.



A positive, unsolicited, independent book review is, in my option, the highest compliment a well written book and its author can receive. "I have been fortunate to receive many of these.


The iUniverse independent editor review in January 2012

This “stellar” evaluation authenticated the book’s quality and verified it worthy of  “global market appeal."


"(The first chapter) is a powerful and poignant opening that sets up the decline in the mother's abilities. This author has daringly jumped back and forth in time, and happily this works well.  She set up the pattern in the first chapter showing the contrast between 'then' and 'now' and she follows that pattern through many more chapters.  Well done!"


"But the most amazing part is the author's use of explicit dialogue. With exquisite detail, this author has documented apartments, clothing, jewelry, habits, pets, dents in cars, doctors, and family members. She has a gift for description."

"Overall, I don't recall checking all these boxes 'yes' on any recent evaluations, but this author puts it all together very well. Her dialogue is remarkably well done."


"The author has given readers incredible insight into the insidious nature of dementia's disease that robs us of our parents." ."Most importantly she has taken readers on her own journey down the road of dementia with a beloved parent." "Readers will find some of themselves and their own experiences (in her book)  as well as offering sound advice about keeping a notebook of vital information."


"This book gives those of us out there on the front lines reassurance that we can look back, when the angels come, and say, I wouldn't have done anything different. "I'm caring for my parent on my own terms." "This book rings true. "Thank you for sharing your story."
