Overview

Jennifer Adams has recently lost a father to cancer, a brother to war, and now her mother's Alzheimer's is progressing to its end stages. Being alone, she faces the final broken link in her family. Although she loves her editing job, the thought in the back of her mind is the continual care she must provide for her ailing parent. Research proves to her there is no cure for this illness. As compassion fatigue and psychological distress threaten to overtake her, a new doctor offers no hope but is willing to travel this journey with her. Dr. Philip Donovan's frustration is evident when he can do little more than provide the latest medications to slow the progress of this illness. However, his counseling with the caregivers guides them in making the final steps easier for their emotional stability to remain intact. Jennifer values the new healer's advice, but is drawn to him in other ways. Philip becomes enamored with this particular caregiver and reaches out to provide the strength needed to come to terms with this illness and relive the many deferred dreams.

Meet the Author

After retiring from education and wanting to stay busy, I dug out all the manuscripts written through the years and began a new career, that of author. Smashwords has been amazing in its assistance in preparing for final publications. I was born and raised in Texas. Although I have lived in other states, I always return home to my roots. My books are written from the heart with my readers always in mind. I hope you find much enjoyment in allowing your mind to wander to other times and places and will return to my site often to see the latest creation available.
