9781450027885: Julita's Sands: A Memoir

In this unique memoir within a memoir is the real life tale of a mother's battle with a disease that shows no mercy, and her daughter's unending love for her.  A narrative told in two voices, Emily shares the story of her newfound relationship with her dementia-stricken mother while her mother illuminates highlights of her life in Cuba.  Julita's Sands reads like a novel, told with brutal honesty and rib-tickling humor as the author takes us on a thrill ride through tunnels of fear, sadness, joy, and inspiration.  What propels this chronicle of their journey together is each one's indomitable spirit as mother battles a disease that is stripping away layers of her being and daughter struggles to understand and cope while trying to keep her sanity and family intact.  The author paints a powerful picture of her outspoken, uninhibited mother, who uses the dinner table as a forum for her "sexcapades."  With vivid images, Emily illuminates the experience of an ordinary daughter in an all too common situation, who ultimately triumphs, managing through a maze of errors, to uncover a loving bond that no disease or affliction could ever take away.

From the Author:

It was tough writing this book, but I loved every minute of it! I loved it because it felt like mom was beside me throughout the process.  There were lots of times that I found my eyes welling up with tears as I wrote the story.  As much as I cried, I laughed too. It was a healing process for me, a way through the trauma of losing mom again, after finding her in our journey together. It is a promise fulfilled, to get her story out, and mine, so that no one will have to go through what we did. Now, the promise is to help the over 5 million people confronting Alzheimers every day, and the close to 11 million unpaid caregivers who are affected by the disease.  50% of the proceeds from the sale of this book is going to The Julita Memorial Foundation to give aid to family caregivers with loved ones suffering from Alzheimers and dementia. I hope that you enjoy Julita's Sands: A Memoir as much as I enjoyed writing it.   --Reliving the experience again
