I hope you all had a fabulous Fourth of July weekend and are ready to climb back aboard the blog tour bus. Today we’re visiting with Mary Beth Magee at “Reviews by Mary Beth. She has written a lovely review that she titled ” A book every caregiver should read by a woman who has been there.” CLICK HERE to read what she has to say.
Tomorrow we will be visiting with Emily Ungar, whose middle grade novel Liberty Belle will be released by Anaiah Press August 12. She will post a review and a guest post I wrote called “Where I Write.” To see the itinerary for the last ten days of the tour, CLICK HERE.

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.
