    From A Broken Heart That Was Slowly Put Back Together

    This one is from the heart . and it is broken. My wife has mild and early cognitive impairment (early Alzheimer's). I purchased this book to try and see where we are currently and where we are going during this most unwelcome journey.

    He starts with Genesis, how he and Phyllis met; then Elegy their life together and the effects of the disease. These sections literally brought tears to my eyes. Next is Healing. The final section is labeled Dawn and is a compilation of quotes on death and afterlife from various sources. I rated this book five stars up to this point. There is only one person and HIS book that can talk about death and an afterlife with knowledge and the authority that comes from it. In my opinion; which was strengthened by this books final section, everything else is just an appeal to emotions, and this is a very emotional situation.

    Thanks to this book I now see that even though my path will get rougher and the weather much more stormy, there will momentary rainbows. I think the message is one of hope; talk (and argue) less and love more.

    The Editorial Review is right-on. I was not sure what Prose Style meant so I tried downloading a free sample (15% of the pages) but all that was included (eBook) was the Title Page, Copyright, and Dedication; basically a worthless waste of time. I'm glad I went ahead and bought the book.
