Yesterday was an exciting day in the life of this new author. The ARCs (advanced reader’s copies) of my memoir went out to reviewers. To make it even more exciting, Barnes & Nobles is now offering the book for pre-order in a Nook format. Other distributors will be offering it in other formats, but this is the only one that is live so far.
It’s not too late if you would like to review the book or participate in the blog tour by spotlighting the book, posting an interview, or posting a guest post. You can sign up at the link below.
About the book:
Sometimes reality really bites. Alzheimer’s has wrapped Mom’s brain into knots, vascular dementia has attacked Dad, and, instead of carefree retirees, we have become caregivers. Regardless, dreams die hard, and we somehow stumbled into the purchase of a forty-foot motor home. That’s when all four of us set out on this seven-week trek across sixteen U.S. states. Now, Dad stopped-up the toilet again, Mom wet her last pair of clean jeans, and David just announced that he was hungry. My head is beginning to pound, and I know this isn’t going to be the easygoing retirement we’d imagined for ourselves.
Linda Brendle takes you on a roller-coaster ride of emotional and spiritual challenges that many families are facing right now. Co-dependency, mental breakdowns, and finding love after divorce are just a few of the issues weaved into this journey of caregiving. Whether you’re looking for an inspirational story to help teach you how to “let go and let God,” considering becoming the caregiver for one of your own parents, or are just looking for an entertaining travel book, this story is sure to strike a tender nerve.
