    1. FIRST IMPRESSION: Memoirs have never been books I really look forward to reading. Especially those about haunting ailments and the loss of loved ones. But as a book lover, and someone who looks at diversity in the genres I read, I sometimes sit down to read a memoir / autobiography. Somehow, knowing that I am reading about real people, who have lived real lives, long or short, that has in some way been noticeable enough to write a memoir about changes my whole perspective while reading the book. [...]


    2. First, let me start off by saying that my Grandfather had Alzheimer's so this book was very near and dear to my heart. It was easy to relate, Even if you have never had a family member, or known someone who has/had Alzheimer's this is a memoir that is written well and will hold your interest. Every page kept my interest. It was never tedious or boring. This story will help those who don't know of the disease Alzheimer's learn more about it and when it effect it has on a person and others. Those [...]


    3. I start by saying that I knew what feelings, this novel could trigger; so when you have to live a situation like this, when you see someone you love "get lost", you can not remain indifferent. In fact, I have not remained indifferent. I think I cried for most of the reading, thinking of my grandmother. There's never a right way to describe a disease, however, this book deals with the so blunt, no sugar the pill, opening eyes to some and giving support to others, through what for Grace and Connie [...]



    4. I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the author. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.This isn't the type of book I normally read but I decided to read The Stages of Grace for a change of pace and I'm glad I did. I already know how Alzheimer's affects families since my grandmother and aunt had it. I was also a home health nurse and helped a couple caregivers deal with the challenges of caring for loved ones with this devastating disease. So, I've [...]


    5. I have always been drawn to the stories of others - the reason my focus has been interviewing for the last decade. So when this book came to my attention, it went right to the top of my to read list. Stages of Grace is the author's very personal and very honest recounting of her journey as primary caregiver for her much loved mother-in-law, Grace. For anyone just starting down this road, I think there are tremendous insights to be found. Ruben discusses her fears, the guilt in not being able to [...]


    6. The Stages of Grace is beautiful, open, honest look into the life of a caregiver and friend. This book had me in tears, laughing and wanting to give both Connie and Grace a hug. Connie writes in such an open and honest manner, that you feel as though you are right there with her having the conversations, talking about the joys and pains of life with a person with Alzheimer's disease.Alzheimer's disease is not an easy disease for anyone to deal with (not that any disease is but this one comes wit [...]


    7. This is an open, emotional memoir from an Alzheimer's caregiver. No matter the illness, owning the role of caregiver is a difficult hat to wear. The stages of Grace take us along the journey from the first days of the diagnosis onward. The author shares her thoughts, fears, doubts, anxiety, pain--and life lessons learned--as she braves each day's ups and downs. Ruben offers readers a well written book in The Stages of Grace. Sometimes, a memoir wanders a lot with random thoughts and memories fro [...]


    8. I had the opportunity to meet Connie at the 2015 Book Expo in New York and that is where I first saw her book about her life with GraceConnie first meets Grace through Grace’s son (and her future husband) and immediately forms a very close and loving friendship with this lively and caring ladyYears later, in 2003 Grace receives a diagnosis of advanced Alzheimer’s disease. Connie is thrown into despair and confusion. Grace has been her pillar, a mother figure and a close friend and the fear o [...]


    9. I’m always interested in reading about caregivers – having been one for a brief period, and knowing how challenging it can be. Having a few friends online and offline who are caring for family suffering with Alzheimer’s, I found The Stages of Grace particularly interesting to read.I loved the authenticity of this memoir that brings out the beautiful relationship between the author and her mother-in-law, Grace. Care givers can learn much from the insights shared, and the author’s journey [...]
