Nick's Picks on WBAA
Life always has its challenges we must deal with. But when the challenge is a degenerative disease like early-onset Alzheimer's, it can make even the most simple things difficult. The Day We Met is such a story about a woman who finally puts all the pieces of happiness together, just to realize she has been diagnosed with the terrible disease. The novel is a collection of her journal entries, and the entries of her loving husband and oldest daughter. Full of hardship, heartbreak, but more importantly, love. A great read for anyone struggling through a tough time in life.WL Library Director Nick Schenkel's review.
