Why did I love this book?
Wendy Mitchell was devastated to receive a diagnosis of early-onset dementia at age 58. What she learned is that having dementia did not mean her life was over. Instead of getting ready to die, as her physician recommended, she got busy living, became a dementia advocate and speaker across the United Kingdom, earned two honorary doctorates, and realized many of her life’s dreams, including that of becoming a published author, telling her deeply personal story. This is one of the first, if not the first, personal accounts of living with dementia to become a national bestseller. Wendy spares no details and brings the reader deep into her life as a woman living alone with memory loss.
