Publisher Description

A moving and insightful story of a woman with early onset Alzheimer's disease, now a major film starring Academy Award winner Julianne Moore and Kristen Stewart.

Alice Howland is proud of the life she worked so hard to build. At fifty, she's a cognitive psychology professor at Harvard and a renowned expert in linguistics, with a successful husband and three grown children. When she begins to grow forgetful and disoriented, she dismisses it for as long as she can until a tragic diagnosis changes her life - and her relationship with her family and the world around her - for ever.

Unable to care for herself, Alice struggles to find meaning and purpose as her concept of self gradually slips away. But Alice is a remarkable woman, and her family learn more about her and each other in their quest to hold on to the Alice they know. Her memory hanging by a frayed thread, she is living in the moment, living for each day. But she is still Alice.

Yes, she's still Alice

Just the most heart warming inspirational book I've read in a long time. Couldn't put it down. I wish I'd read it years ago when my own mum had a form of dementia, not Alzheimer's, but caused from brain damage. I would have understood better how she really was, and support her more than I did. A worthwhile book for everyone to learn about this tragic debilitating disease that can strike anyone, anytime.
Wish I could give more than 5 stats😊
