Are you a reader who has ever pondered the unfairness of life, who has wished for someone to call and weigh-in on the imbalances in life or feels like you do more than your fair share? You will want to read this book and meet Tig Monohan, a frazzled therapist who is working very hard to care for her mother with Alzheimer’s, her colicky niece and her difficult patients. Tig finds however that even saying ‘no more’ can create more issues.

Ann Garvin’s wit and sensitivity keep her in full control of the emotional subject matter. Realistic characterizations firmly situate readers in this eccentric, endearing story of a family coming together to face the ravages of Alzheimer’s.

Ann is an accomplished, award-winning keynote speaker who has spoken to numerous groups. She worked as a gerontology nurse and has now published three books. Her most recent looks at caregiving, Alzheimer’s and the difficulty of doing too much in a world that asks too much of us in the context of fairness, caregiving and family. Ann firmly believes in the enduring power of humor and story to create empathy and understanding, as these are the qualities that bind together in humanity.
