    Celie is a poor black woman whose letters tell the story of 20 years of her life, beginning at age 14 - when she is being abused and raped by her father and attempting to protect her sister from the same fate - and continuing over the course of her marriage to "Mister", a brutal man who terrorizes her.

    I saw the movie before I listened to the book and thought I might be disappointed in the book. I was not. The book was beautiful and the performance was great.

    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.

    Ira says: "Incredibly stimulating and thought-provoking"

    Story

    As a nurse who has cared for patients with Alzheimer's Disease, I have wondered what might go on inside their minds as they slip away. This story followed very true to what is known with AD and followed with some of my own experiences. It also showed what I have seen with some AD patients who are past the point of knowing who they are or where they are; that they are still able to have pleasure and a quality of life, even if it is not what their earlier self would have wanted.
    The author does a good job of reading her story although I usually prefer a narrator who is able to perform with different voices and Lisa was not able to do this.
