Shattered Lives: Finding Hope in the Midst of Alzheimers and Other Related Dementia Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Shattered Lives: Finding Hope in the Midst of Alzheimers and Other Related Dementia

After her first husband died at age thirty-eight, leaving her alone to raise their three children, Ellen thought she'd faced the hardest challenge a woman could endure, until years later when her second husband, Herm, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. For nine years she and Herm shared a fruitful, happy life in a marriage that seemed like it had been made in heaven. Finally, she thought, the hard times were over.

But slowly, without warning, her once strong, take-charge husband could no longer remember simple things such as how to get home or where he'd put everyday items. He'd roam around the house all night and could no longer dress himself or perform simple tasks. “Shattered Lives: Finding Hope in the Midst of Alzheimer's and Other Related Dementia” is about how to find peace while working through the many different emotions--anger, fear, guilt, pain, love, sadness, frustration, and loneliness.
