Winter Solstice, by Diana Howard
We take our memory for granted. Dementia will steal it in ways most of us could never imagine.
Winter Solstice by Diana Howard burrows deep into the heart-rendering poetic journey of a daughter trying to love and help her mother who is slowly losing her memory.
Through poems and vignettes written over a period of 15 years, the reader will enter a world of denial, confusion, shame, fear, humor, sacrifice, patience and love – finding solace and empathy with an experience many of us go through, yet struggle to find words to describe.
