©2004 Patti Davis; (P)2004 Books on Tape
"Davis's thoughtful and honest reflections make her father come to life again and should foster remembrances for readers as well." (Publishers Weekly)
This book was such a wonderful testament to Ms. Davis' father. Ms. Davis has a wonderful way of reaching into your soul and bringing out the emotions you tuck neatly away. I think I cried throughout the whole book. I related to her on every level and understood the pain she was going through (my grandmother had Alzheimer's). This book gave me new insight into the lives of Ronald and Nancy Regan and I now have a deep respect for them. A MUST READ!
I foundtoga bop to be validating, conforting and thought provoking. I was able to identify greatly with this and can't even begin to describe the many things I found we have in common.
Insightful and Heartwarming
Patti, because she was able to express so well the truth of her own growth through a most difficult disease, Alzheimer's. This is the story of her personal relationship with her father who was inflicted with the disease and who also happened to be, arguably the most influential and beloved President of the United States in the last century!
Patti Davis, daughter of Ronald Reagan
I cried, because it hits a personal chord for me as I care for my husband, age 65, who also has Alzheimer's Disease. We have known each other since high school and have been married 44 years. He is and always has been the love of my life and best friend!
Alzheimer's is one of the most devastating diseases of our time! There is no cure and little hope of a cure anytime soon. Death will occur within around ten years if not sooner. While it clearly affects families dealing with the disease up close and personal, it will ultimately take its' toll on everyone as those suffering will grow from the current five million in the US alone to over 20 million worldwide by 2013.
