Just as Deb and her mother Estelle are learning how to mesh their individual lives together, nature??s destructive hand comes down, leaving them to wait for a new hope, and help from unexpected others.
In SURVIVING MOTHER Gwen Head has written a story of life struggles, tragedy, and getting one??s life back together to move forward. Written with the caregivers of the world in mind, Head takes the reader into a daughter??s and mother??s life struggles, doubts, and hardships as they deal with the emotional ups and downs of living with Alzheimer??s Disease. In SURVIVING MOTHER we can all find a little inspiration that, in the end, we can all overcome even the toughest obstacles.
Excellent subject, timely and very well written. I would highly recommend it to all interested readers.

Once I got to know the characters, I found I couldn??t put it down. It??s a pretty accurate depiction of what happens when your parent becomes your child. It is something none of us can prepare for. For a person like Deb, who has never had children, it can be overwhelming. Ms. Head adeptly fleshes out her disparate characters, makes you fall in love with them, root for them, cry with them, and takes you on a journey that is profound. It is at times painful, funny, and completely fascinating. It begs a sequel. I cannot wait to read it.
