A sensitive and beautifully written book on Kate Jowell's struggle of living with Dementia. Has been referred to many families facing their own struggle with the disease who have found it beneficial and enlightening. This was a labour of love by Sharon Souris-Morris who got to know Kate well during this journey. The disease impacted on her life and continues to do so by all who read the book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A touching account of the accomplished, respected and adored Kate Jowell's courage in the face of a disease that erodes the very essence of who she is. Told with empathy, grace and humour, I was left at once saddened, yet utterly grateful and yes, inspired. It's one of those reads that reminds you of the common threads running through our collective narratives as human beings; a story that reminds you that we all just want the same things: love, happines - however you define that - health, a sense of belonging. Sharon Sorour-Morris' integrity as a writer and biographer is evident, as is her clear understanding of the art of the master narrative. I gave up and eventually cancelled a weekend's plans to just finish this compelling, eminently readable book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
