At 93, my mother-in-law passed away in a nursing home. She was there for a couple of years due to dementia and alzheimers. My husband faithfully visited his mother. At times, it was difficult as she didn't speak. She was there physically but was gone. He would tell her he loved her and would be back soon. The last time he spoke to her she said she loved him too. What a blessing!
We would see these seniors every week. Most had no visitors. Each lived a full life. A story to be told. We found out that one woman was a WASP who flew planes during the war. Unfortunately no one came to hear her story.
I received this book from Revell Reads to review.
