Today we’re stopping by the website of another Anaiah Press author, Angela Schroeder. Angela has posted a spotlight that tells a little bit about my upcoming memoir, A Long and Winding Road: A Caregiver’s Tale of Life, Love, and Chaos. She is also giving her visitors a chance to win an autographed poster of my book cover or a small spiral notebook. Watch my author video of you don’t know the significance of the notebook.
Tomorrow will be a free day–one of those days on tour when you can go shopping, relax in the sun by the pool, or revisit any earlier stops you might have missed.

Saturday, we’ll visit with Dr. Sharon V. King at Years Full of Grace for an author interview. Among other things, we’ll talk about how Alzheimer’s Disease has affected my spiritual life.
Release Date: July 1, 2014
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.
