Publisher's summary

What if the person who knew you best and loved you most forgot your face, and couldn't remember your name?

The Impossible Promise

Memory care is everyone's solution for what to do about Sara, but her husband, Jack, can't bear to live without her. He's committed to saving his marriage, his wife, and their life together from the devastation of Alzheimer's disease.

They 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: They will stay together in their beautiful home no matter what the disease brings.

A Heartbreaking Choice

However, after nine years of selfless caregiving, complicated by her progressing Alzheimer's and his own failing heart, Jack finally admits he can no longer care for his wife at home. With reluctance, he arranges to admit her to an assisted living facility.

But on the morning of admission, Sara is having one of her few good days, and he's 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.

Amazing

If I could give this more than 5 stars in all three categories I would! This author told a tale that is ripped from everyday life for Alzheimer’s care givers/family members. She did it with such a tender outlook that it is a love story for the ages. The performance was outstanding. Highly recommend this book!
