This is a very thought provoking book. I read it quite a while ago, so there won't be many details here in this review, but I remember it as the story of one woman's incredibly moving journey through the maze that is early onset Alzheimers'. A brilliant and successful, albeit ruthless, academician, Alice becomes 'lost' one day in the familiar landscape of Boston. Diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's, the book takes us on her journey, painful as it is, as the disease progresses. This is an outstanding book and I recommend it most highly.
