Glenda Montigny, PEI "As a nurse working in Long Term Care, I see the advanced staged Ruby every day. Of course, there is discussion among nursing staff as to how we would want our lives to play out if we were the ones who were diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. I could not put your novel down. The characters are so humanly real and captivating. Ruby made me angry, sad, angry, happy. . . all in all, this is going to be my suggestion for our next novel in our workplace bookclub. Thanks for a chance to share my life with these characters."
