Wendyl's mother suffered from Alzheimer's, and during her last days she told Wendyl the most amazing stories of her life. It was as if her failing memory was delving back into the past in one final desperate attempt for it to be remembered. Being adopted into a family who didn't ...really need or want her, Wendyl's mother had a difficult childhood. When Wendyl heard about the family secrets in her mother's background, she was determined to get to the bottom of them. What she found were some quite extraordinary stories of loss, grief and love. Written in a warm, accessible style, this compelling and moving story is about mothers and daughters, aging and the way deep family traumas echo down through the generations. It is also spliced with wisdom on caring for someone with dementia or Alzheimer's.
