Description: Imagine the heart-wrenching devastation that is experienced by a family when a parent is diagnosed with Alzheimer s disease! In Before My Eyes, author Diane Currie shares her candid and personal reflections about her mother s struggle with this disease as she copes with the reality of the present but always honors the memory of the past. Through a series of moving vignettes, she remains connected with her mother in a creative way as the strong bond between them slowly dissolves as the disease progresses. From the first moment of her mother s diagnosis, Currie conveys in a captivating manner the intense feelings of loss and hopelessness one experiences when dealing with this dreadful disease. She is able to portray the subtle changes in her mother s behavior and personality throughout her decline, all in a deeply human way. While Before My Eyes describes one family s touching and painful journey, in essence Currie s reflective account may typify the Alzheimer s experience, while offering support and validation to all those who walk its arduous path.
