Information from the publishers:
This charmingly frank, honest, sensitive, and very personal account of one woman’s challenge to single-handedly identify and care for her beloved partner who develops frontal lobe vascular dementia makes remarkably compelling and accessible reading. The brisk, lively pace of the narrative also refreshingly illustrates how and why it is perfectly permissible to feel fear, anger, and despair and how Ali often manages to dig deep and draw on reserves of patience, love and understanding. Ali hopes that in honestly and authentically sharing her experiences it might help others in similar circumstances. This is a true story of courage, determination, tenderness and love… to the very end.
About the author: Brought up in the 1950’s on a remote farm in the Isle of Man, Ali Sinclair was educated at a Quaker boarding school and later trained to be a teacher. She lived in Cornwall for thirty years with her husband and two children and had her own Chiropody and Reflexologist practice. After the break-up of her marriage, Ali moved to North Wales with her friend, Bob. Here she continued to work while studying in her spare time for an M.A. in Creative writing at Bangor University and facilitating a local writer’s group and workshops. Now retired, Ali loves travelling, walking in the mountains, and – of course – writing.
