Elizabeth Berg , the bestselling author of over thirty books, comes to us with a beautiful memoir about her parents in their final years. In this personal family love story, Elizabeth tells her experience of watching her parents’ relationship when she was growing up. When her father is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and they are moved out of their home, it’s up to their children to care for them in ways they couldn’t expect. Carol talks to Elizabeth about what made writing a memoir different from the other writing she’s worked on in the past, and especially what made her decide to write this one. Elizabeth also explains her care in delving into the difficult topics in her family’s relationships during this time, and the effect they had on her and her siblings.
