AS NORA JO FADES AWAY: CONFESSIONS OF A CAREGIVER a Memoir by Lisa Cerasoli,Foreword by Leeza Gibbons is a powerful Memoir/Mental Illness/Dementia/Alzheimer's Disease. What a powerful and compelling story of a caregiver/Granddaughter of someone with Dementia and/or Alzheimer's Disease. This is a heartbreaking disease for both the one affected and the family. Ms. Gibbons has written an honest story without bias,it has its funny moments but is a true heartbreaker. A must read for not only caregivers but for everyone who has a loved one. Powerful story! Received for an honest review from the author. RATING: 4.5 HEAT RATING: NONE REVIEWED BY: AprilR, Review courtesy of My Book Book Addiction and More

Lisa Cerasoli writes with startling irreverence about taking in her beloved Gram who has dementia. Her words of confession say what we may be afraid to, but love for her Gram is always there. Her book dares us to smile in our pain.
