I was not too pleased to pay $13.99 for this book to find out it had less than 200 pages, BUT after reading the first page, I was drawn into this book. Kimberly made me feel as though I was right there with her from adolescence to adulthood. She spoke freely about her feelings towards her mother and also with dealing with her mother's dementia. She was not the movie actress writing a book- she was a person we can all relate to. She speaks of the learning process she and her family have gone through and most importantly she relates the mistakes she and her family made because they loved their mother/wife so much. Very informative and an excellent read. I recommend this book to anyone who is dealing with any stage of dementia.

A heartfelt tribute to the mother-daughter relationship: dealing with a PPA-dementia diagnosis, change in family dynamics, and love and support throughout the journey. Many of us have a family member going through something, no matter what chronic, incurable disease a family member may have, this book can lift one up and help to find you're not alone. It's a road not easily traveled, many battles along the way, but the insights shared help to better understand everything going on from a fresh point of view. Bravo for sharing her family's story and showing us "where the light gets in." I'll never look at a gold paperclip the same way again.
