    Deeply moving and inspiring, not only as a testament to the tria

    Deeply moving and inspiring, not only as a testament to the trials of those afflicted and affected by Alzheimer's, but as pure poetry alone.

    Inspirational

    Each poem is a vivid metaphor unveiling the gradual confrontation between a daughter and her mother's chronic disease. Searching for Cecy is a contemplative read full of inspirational moments. The poems are accompanied by original art, and the book design is unexpected and sophisticated for it's genre.

    The poems and artwork are matched so beautifully in this book! I found it truly inspiring. I think anyone who has a parent or loved one who suffers from Alzheimer's would relate to this book. I enjoyed following Ms. Prescott's journey!
