Informative

I found this book to not only be informative about the disease, but also encouraging.

Battleground of a disease unimaginable till you join the dance.

Beautiful story of loving and living with a partner whom is held in the grips of Alzheimers. The battle fought between The compassionate giver and The Taker of life before death. Slow Dancing with a Stranger is a must read for those who love deeply for better or worse.

Heartbroken wife

This was excellent and so very eye opening. I cried uncontrollably for your loss and bravery. I will be going through this same thing. I can only hope I’m just as brave.

A disturbing read

I have great admiration and respect for the author's courage and honesty in sharing this history with us. I hope never to be in her circumstance but she has given me a valuable insight into what we might all face.

Spellbinding....

What a touching and perceptive journey this is. For those of us caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s, it’s a tough listen. Nonetheless I would thoroughly recommend it as a fine example of what courage and love can help us rise above.
