This is such an amazing book. It's rare that I even get misty-eyed when I read a book, much less cry by the end of it. But knowing what Alice had forgotten and how shut out she felt was so heartbreaking. It read very much like it was written by the relative of someone with Alzheimer's disease.

I loved how the book was written: Alice's story was told very simply and beautifully. I have no connections to Alzheimer's disease at all, but it still hit home. It could happen to anyone, and I really felt that throughout the book.

It's so well-done, and it's not something that I'll forget anytime soon. The praise on the back cover were dead-on. I think this is a must-read. It gets a 5 out of 5.
