"The story of a blissful marriage, cross-cut with a raw commentary on the progress of his wife's disease… It's the exhausted voice of carers everywhere – exasperation, loss, fear, frustrated love." Elizabeth Grice, Daily Telegraph
"The style is conversational, bright and grimly compelling. And the memoir is an act of loving resistance." Kate Kellaway, The Observer
"Heartfelt, vivid and true" Sunday Times Culture

Read this book if you are in similar circumstance but if you are not, it is a wonderful glimpse into the lives of this special couple.
Once you start reading his book you do not want to put it down.
His story provides both humour and deep sadness, he tells of how he has managed to cope with his wife Bonnie`s dementia and how he struggled at times to deal with the increasing stress that he has suffered in doing so.
The mental struggle eventually in having to make a decision on whether to carry on trying to care for his beloved "Bonnie" or to make the hardest decision in his life and place her in full time care?
I wont say much more as it is a book that you must buy and read yourself to understand. It was a privelige to have been able to read his book!
