John Daniel explores the delicate terrain of memory and loss as Alzheimer's disease hastens his mother's decline. Struggling with guilt and anger, he pieces together fragmented recollections of both her life and his own. A story of daily burdens, unexpected blessings, and the "deep smile of the spirit.

A poet and an essayist, John Daniel weaves graceful meditations on the nature of memory, identity, aging, and the tenacity of family into this moving account of his mothers last years. Uneasy in his role as caregiver, Daniel struggles with guilt, embarrassment, and anger over his mothers transformation. As she loses her memory to Alzheimers, he delves into his own in a passionate attempt to remember—for her and for himself—the remarkable history of their lives.
