Trading Places: Becoming My Mother’s Mother: A Daughter’s Memoir by Sandra Bullock Smith

Caring for an elderly parent can be extremely challenging. The role reversal involved is emotionally and intellectually demanding, and many caregivers find themselves unprepared to undertake such a difficult task.In Trading Places: Becoming My Mother’s Mother, author Sandra Bullock Smith shares her personal experiences spending ten years caring for her ailing mother. This heartfelt look at the trials and tribulations of that decade offers powerful insight and encouragement for anyone entering into a similar period of life. Smith’s touching stories share the heartbreaking, and sometimes comical, moments she experienced while providing assistance to her aging parent—and how they mirrored similar events from her own childhood. In a very real sense, the two women traded places. Smith found herself uttering phrases she heard all too often as a child, such as, “Don’t give your food to the dog” and, “You’ve had enough sugar today.” Smith began jotting down the things she said, and thus this charming book was born.Filled with respect, compassion, and love, this uplifting and amusing memoir is for anyone involved in elder care or who may face the role in the future.

Blue Hydrangeas: an Alzheimer’s love story by Marianne Sciucco

What if the person who knew you best and loved you most forgot your face, and couldn’t remember your name? A care facility is everyone’s solution for what to do about Sara, but her husband, Jack, can’t bear to live without her. He is committed to saving his marriage, his wife, and their life together from the devastation of Alzheimer’s disease. He and Sara retired years ago to the house of their dreams, and operated it as a Cape Cod bed and breakfast named Blue Hydrangeas. Jack has made an impossible promise: He and Sara will stay together in their beautiful home no matter what the disease brings. However, after nine years of selfless caregiving, complicated by her progressing Alzheimer’s and his own failing heart, he finally admits he can no longer care for her at home. With reluctance, he arranges to admit her to an assisted living facility. But, on the day of admission, Sara is having one of her few good days, and he is unable to follow through. Instead, he takes them on an impulsive journey to confront their past and reclaim their future. In the end, he realizes that staying together at any cost is what truly matters.

God Speaks.a true story by Beverly A. Brown

When God does something miraculous, sometimes you see it and sometimes you don’t. I can truthfully say, that I have seen a miracle. I never expected it to happen. The circumstances surrounding it didn’t make much sense to me at the time, because my daughter was dying. My daughter…a child whose biography is full of challenges. But God had a special purpose for her life. Now I can understand why He chose her. She was a perfect candidate for God to work through—in ways that most of us can’t even imagine. Something supernatural happened to my daughter. God worked in her life in such a way that revealed a unique revelation of His presence. It was a never to be forgotten experience, creating a phenomena, which is now burned into many people’s memories. One author said it this way…God is speaking, always speaking; not through channels you might have expected. But He is always speaking. My daughter’s life and her death would make that statement ring true in a way that no one could have predicted. Her legacy would live on long after she was gone.You probably have no idea who Tara Nicole Brown is, but what a story it tells; her story.If you have ever wondered…is God really involved in my life? or…is there really life after death?, then this story is for you. It’s an exceptional story. Piecing it together has been my labor of love these past four years. I think it’s important to share how we’ve survived times of adversity and tragedy, so that we don’t lose heart; which is part of the reason I wrote this book. All of us go through dark times in our lives. When life seems dark and hard to understand, many times we doubt God’s presence. But we are not alone. God is with us. As you dig a little deeper in this story, you will discover, He is with us…even in the valley of the shadow of death.My daughter’s life was a great testimony of God’s presence, His love, and true purpose. Now her memory lives on in the hearts of those who knew her, and even in those who didn’t. She had a rare occurrence take place in her life, a gift I can’t explain any other way than by saying that she was a child of God, and He came to her in a special way. It was a real miracle. But it takes knowing about her life before that divine encounter for the miracle to be understood.So, I’ll just start right here and tell you the rest of the story…

Shadowland by C.M. Gray

This is the story that came before, when Britain was just a Shadowland.We grow up with the Legend of King Arthur, but where did he come from? Who was Merlin? What part did the Druids play in bringing Arthur to his round table? On the night of Midwinter’s Eve, a storyteller takes his listeners back to the Dark Ages and a tale from his youth:`I have lived more years than I can remember, probably more than the sum of all your years combined. Kings have called me friend and brigands have sworn to burn the flesh from my bones, even if they have to search all seven halls of the shadowland to find me.’Deserted by its Roman masters, Britain has been invaded by the Saxons at the invitation of Vortigern, traitorous leader of the Britons. As the tribes unite to reclaim their land, one man must rise to lead them and become their only true king.
