It’s time to get out and stretch your legs as we visit with N.N. Light, author of Princess of the Light. On her beautiful site, you can read a synopsis of A Long and Winding Road: A Caregiver’s Tale of Life, Love, and Chaos along with Mrs. N’s review. She has also posted a friendly question and answer session she and I had. Don’t forget to scroll down to the link just above my picture where you can sign up to win free stuff.

After you’ve done all that, there will still be time to wander around the Princess of the light website before we get back on the bus and head for stop #4. Tomorrow we’ll visit with Sara at Confessions of an Ex-Ballerina.

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.
