    You've just been promoted to a new leadership position. You're not yet sure of the challenges ahead or how you will meet them. All you know is that you have three months to get on top of the job and move forward, or fail.

    As a professional home stager, Sandy Sullivan is an expert at transforming cluttered rooms into attractive houses ready for sale. If only reinventing her life were as easy as choosing the perfect paint color. She’s eager to put her family’s suburban Boston home on the market, to downsize, and to simplify her own life. But she must first deal with her foot-dragging husband and her grown son, who has moved back home after college to inhabit the basement “bat cave.” After reading them the riot act, Sandy takes a job staging a boutique hotel in Atlanta recently acquired by her best friend’s boyfriend.

    Alice Howland is proud of the life she worked so hard to build. At 50 years old, she's a cognitive psychology professor at Harvard and a world-renowned expert in linguistics with a successful husband and three grown children. When she begins to grow disoriented and forgetful, a tragic diagnosis changes her life - and her relationship with her family and the world - forever.

    Story
    What did you love best about Still Alice?

    What is our greatest fear? Yes, this is it. This is a truly believable, sad story, that deals with the scariest topic for us women over 50. But, it's not just sad, it offers information, which is always comforting. Still thinking about it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Still Alice?

    How her children handled it.


    What about Lisa Genova’s performance did you like?

    Perfect.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No....too much processing needed for me.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you.
