Alice Howland is a popular professor at Harvard, has three great children, and a loving husband. When she starts forgetting things she at first blames it on menopause, but then then gets a scary diagnosis - Early Onset Alzheimer's Disease. The book follows her progress with the disease.
This book was so many things. Mainly it was depressing, but it was also eye-opening and beautiful. The way the author was able to tell Alice's story was great in that it drew me in and I felt a bit of what Alice felt. In the beginning I felt scared for her and the way the author presented the ending, I also felt a little lost like Alice did. I don't really know what else to say except that this was an amazing novel and I think everyone should read it.
