New giveaway! Now I'm giving away Every Waking Moment by Chris Fabry!

About the book:

Treha Langsam is a mysterious young woman who has fallen through the cracks, much like many of the elderly people she works with at Desert Gardens Retirement Home. But Miriam Howard, director of the facility, sees her extraordinary gift and untapped potential. Treha is a whisperer of sorts, calling those who have slipped into dementia back to a life of vibrant, if only temporary, clarity.When Treha's and Miriam's stories intertwine with a documentary team looking for stories of the elderly, Treha's gift is uncovered, and the search begins for answers to the mysteries of her past. As their paths converge, each person is forced to face the same difficult question: "What if this is as good as my life gets?"An uplifting, human tale of an ordinary woman with an extraordinary gift.

My thoughts: This book starts out with a heart-rending scene. Wow. It just gets deeper as you read along. I never would have guessed that a book on this topic would intrigue me, but it has. I am on page 218 but am enjoying it so far for the unique story that it is. I hope to have a review soon. but I am on vacation right now so it's hard to get any reading done. To sum things up...  I've never read anything quite like this story before. I'm curious as to how it will end.

And now for the question... Do you know anyone who has suffered from dementia?

I don't know anyone who suffers from dementia. For a while they were saying my father was, but it turned out to be the mixture of medicine they had him on, it was making him confused. After they changed his medicine he was fine. I love Chris Fabry's books, so far Dogwood is my favorite. Thanks for having the giveaway.
