While this story is a work of fiction, it is a truly moving tale of a family’s struggles dealing with Alzheimer’s disease. Tangles follows Lois’s life from childhood to the very end of her life. We get an honest look at her thoughts and feelings as she grows up, through her adulthood, through marriage and childbirth and everything in between. We see how this horrible disease affects her relationships with others and how difficult it is for them to deal with it all. Through it all, we find a love story. More than one if I’m being honest. This story is heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time.
Lois’s son Logan is tasked with caring for his ailing mother, and during his time with her discovers some family secrets that are extremely hard to accept. Throughout the story we follow his journey of devastation, anger, love, and ultimately forgiveness. Tangles is beautifully written and definitely grabs you by the heartstrings. I highly recommend you pick this one up and start reading now!
