trade-size paperback.

from the back cover:
Welcome to Auletta, Louisiana, where the typical bumper sticker reads: God, Guns, and Guts Made This Country Great. Unfortunately for Jeanne Roth, a middle-aged woman with no taste for backwater towns, Auletta becomes her new home when she makes good on a promise to her dying father to care for her mother. When Jeanne learns that her mama has Alzheimer's, she must confront a past bursting with memories of her mama, a once vibrant femme fatale. As she watches mama's grace and charm slowly slip away, Jeanne is forced to reflect on her own goals and find a new hero to look up to. And suddenly Jeanne, an expert at analyzing others while neglecting her own troubles, is squaring off directly with the one person she has tried to avoid: herself.

A decent enough read, though if I hadn't been confined to bed and bored to tears, I would have set this aside unfinished.

I am the steward of the Little Free Library on Mills Street and this book caught my eye. I seemed to like it more than you did although I did skim some at the end. I thought her description of caring for a person with Alzheimer's disease was pretty accurate. She certainly had some other issues as well. I also thought there was WAY too much foreshadowing of the big crisis. Foreshadowing should HINT at what is to come. If the reader wasn't expecting it, she wasn't paying any attention. I think I would highly recommend the first two-thirds of the book and I'm just sorry the end didn't live up to it. I will put it back in the LFL and see what the next person has to say. PS: Stop and say hello sometime.
