    With courage and wisdom Dorothy Sander spills truth onto every page of this rare book. Uneasy topics are handled with skill and her personal experience is beautiful, painful, raw, and real. Readers will never be alone on similar difficult journeys when they can tap into Dorothy's insights. Her style and ability as a wordsmith make this volume a joy, and the stark realities it contains make it important reading for anyone caring for an aging loved one.

    While I found Caring for Mom difficult to read from a personal standpoint because it prompted me to revisit memories of my own mother and the myriad challenges faced and emotions felt in caring for her before her death, I admired the author's wisdom, insight, perspective, and ability to put into words what so many of us feel and are unable to articulate. Her honesty is balanced and her gift for drawing the reader into situations and the emotions they enkindled is very real and very tangible. All in all, I found Caring for Mom to be quite an inspiring read.

    Beautifully presented, and with attractive illustrations, Dorothy Sander's skill as a writer becomes apparent as one begins this poignant book. Written during the time she was caring for her dying mother, Dorothy reveals her inner struggles and reflections on life. Many truths are held within the pages of Aging Abundantly, as Dorothy writes from her soul with love and clarity. She writes how, when we have little or no influence over life events, we do have a choice in how we deal with each challenge. She writes of the emotional and mental changes that affect everyone as they go through life, and how attitude can make a difference to survival or defeat. As I read through this book, I smiled a lot. Parallel to Dorothy's sometimes dismay at how swift life passes, and also the changes that come with the aging process, is her humour. While she struggles at times, one can see that she will be a survivor. Aging Abundantly is a powerful little book that will bring you both joy and tears.... More > Celia Leaman Canadian author,< Less
