In this award-winning novel perfect for book clubs and fans of Jodi Picoult or Kristin Hannah, troubled sisters are torn apart and brought back together by their mother's dementia crisis in a riveting medical drama.

"It's the quintessential 'how did we get here?' story.”

Favorite daughter Elizabeth wants to do the right thing when faced with a family emergency. Her beloved mother Janice receives a deadly Alzheimer's diagnosis, and her siblings at odds tailspin toward their last resort with disastrous fallout.

Elizabeth soon exposes her mother's long-held secret, which lies at the root of her family's problems. With the parents and sisters she thought she knew turned upside down, she struggles to find her way back home in this intimate and poignant family drama as memorable as Still Alice by Lisa Genova and as touching as The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth.

"A profound analysis of complicated family dynamics ...gripping" (Kirkus Reviews).

Brought to Our Senses is the critically acclaimed winner of six literary awards for fiction, including the Writer's Digest Book Awards, IAN Book of the Year Awards, Wishing Shelf Book Awards, Readers' Favorite Awards, and Next Generation Indie Book Awards.
