In November I did the Alzheimer's Walk, in memory of a friend's mother. I knew the basics of Alzheimer's but have also recently learned about this dreadful disease a little more in depth. Mostly I learned what people with Alzheimer's can't do. Then I picked up The Things We Keep. This book focused on something they could still do, and that is love.
The characters in this book are each going through challenges in their lives, some very drastic. While it would be easy to give up hope, they all learn that it doesn't have to be that way. I love that the author keeps the story real, doesn't sugarcoat realities, and keeps the story from getting all wrapped up in a pretty bow in the end.
I read this book in two days, but could have easily read it in one if I didn't have to cook Thanksgiving dinner. - Rosanna (Downtown)
