Author Marianne Sciuccoabout this book: Jack and Sara have lived an idyllic life on Cape Cod, welcoming guests to their beautiful bed and breakfast Blue Hydrangeas. Jack enjoys a good game of golf and Sara, a well-known and respected artist, is often found painting en plein air around town. When Alzheimer's disease interrupts their lovely retirement, Jack makes an impossible promise: he and Sara will remain at Blue Hydrangeas no matter what the disease brings. Friends and family mean well, but Jack can't bear to live without her and refuses to consider a care facility although caregiving for Sara is a never-ending job. So the days roll into weeks, months, and then years and here they are, together at home, just the two of them with Sara's Alzheimer's. A poignant story about love, loss and living written by a masterful storyteller who happens to be a nurse. Inspired by real-life couples the author met in her work, Blue Hydrangeas is a tribute to caregivers everywhere.
