I have to say, I love a book with some mystery . . . Especially about dark pasts
A complex, suspenseful, and engrossing tale of doubts, trust, budding romance, and two bullets.
Eighteen-year-old Leigh arrives at a Tel Aviv hospital, seeking information about her probable father. Dr. Sloan, who had a cardiac arrest right after they met for the first time. As she stands next to her father’s bed and watches him, her past, present and future collide. Despite the advice of those around her, Leigh decides to face the challenges of the legal system in Israel. She obtains a court order for a paternity test and confronts Sloan. During the quest to find the truth about her biological father, Leigh is exposed to violent religious intolerance, faces life in a country where church and state are not separate, and meets the man who may be her first true love. Will she change her view of the world she thought she knew? Will she forgive her mother? Will a gunshot change her attitude towards her probable father? And, what will she say to Steve, the only father she ever really had?
A book with mystery, a dark past, family issues, different country, different laws, everything, literally in one single book. This book was definitely not a bore to read, it kept me on the edge of my seat or awake all night just to see what happens next.
I give Michelle and Bloody Coffee ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️!!! The cover, the story itself, and the way it was written. It swallowed me up!
If anyone who knows someone who has suffered from Dementia or worked with people with Dementia, I can agree that this book speaks volumes.
Mindful Dementia Care is a book of stories and a book of love. It is a book without denial, without any papering over the challenges that can be involved with being a caregiver, and the sadness, anger, and frustration they may bring. It is also a life-changing source of information that can revolutionize relationships with one of the most vulnerable populations in our midst. In her decades as a caregiver, Ruth Dennis witnessed the tragic results of the medical used and institutionalized way of caring for people with dementia. And equally clearly, she saw a better way. Mindful Dementia Care illustrates alternative methods for making a difference and achieving results through care that honors the whole person. The key is creating an environment with countless enriching touchstones to the inner person through facilities that are filled with art, animal companions, music, dance, books, laughter, and wholesome food. It is an approach that embraces creative and artistic processes to shape a more loving, spiritual approach for elders and their families.
My Grandfather suffered from this disease, and it was hard to watch. I worked in Hospice and Home Health for years, and I knew exactly what to do when it came to scheduling. I hear stories from caregivers, spouses and children of what they went through. I cannot tell you how many times I have been on the phone for over an hour just so these people can vent their concerns because no one else will listen.
I will always hold this book with me, and keep me close to me to remember my Grandfather. He was my best friend.
