What if, after a lifetime of marriage, the person who knew you best and loved you most forgot your face, and couldn't remember your name? A nursing 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.

Marianne Sciucco has done a beautiful job of portraying the experience of Alzheimer's from many perspectives with characters who feel so real they could walk off the page. Blue Hydrangeas is a tender love story that reveals the complexities of aging and loss. An enjoyable and meaningful book!
