Yesterday I signed a contract with Open Books Press to publish my book, Confessions of an Imperfect Caregiver, A Daughter-in-Law Tells All. I am thrilled that the story of Rodger and me will be made public. I hope that caregivers everywhere will see a bit of themselves in my imperfections and find some comfort in knowing they are not alone in doing the hardest thing that will ever touch them so deeply or teach them so much.
Confessions of an Imperfect Caregiver – A Daughter-in-law Tells All, depicts my seven-year commitment to caring for my mentally and physically ill father-in-law. In the words of Alexandra Axel, Media Director, The Caregiver Space, “Your writing is beautiful, your story is compelling, and the problems you present to the reader are complex. … I’m loving it… From the bottom of my heart, thank you for putting your experience on the page. I can’t wait to keep reading.”
