Author Darlene Jonesabout this book: I honestly don't remember what prompted me to start writing this story, but once I started the ideas just flowed. Part of worked for me was the combination of the old lady with the kids. I taught teens for many years, so it is natural for me to write about them and in fact all of my books have teen characters playing significant roles even though my books are not YA.

Review comments:

What I particularly liked about this story is the way Flo's illness (Alzheimer's) is represented. There is a symbiosis between the two women, young and old. Flo is never the defenseless old lady waiting for rescue; she is as determined to help her young protégé as Brittany is help her. The relationship between Flo and Brittany is at the heart of the story and the author manages this with a humord and warmth that never detracts from the overall plot.
Very, very enjoyable!
Oh – and I loved the cover.
