All the Dancing Birds by Auburn McCanta
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Oh, how this book made me cry. The prose is luminescent, the love is transcendent. It should have been a faster read as it’s not a long book, but Lillie’s heart-wrenching slide into forgetfulness and despair is overwhelming and I had to take breaks. I felt like I was cheating, too, because people living with Alzheimer’s, either as the patient or someone who loves the patient, would be immersed in it, no breaks. A beautifully written, eye-opening read.
