Cover Reveal - A Long and Winding Road: A Caregiver’s Tale of Life, Love and Chaos

A Long and Winding Road: A Caregiver’s Tale of Life, Love and Chaos

Blurb: Sometimes reality really bites. Alzheimer’s has wrapped Mom’s brain into knots, vascular dementia has attacked Dad, and, instead of carefree retirees, we have become caregivers. Regardless, dreams die hard, and we somehow stumbled into the purchase of a forty-foot motor home. That’s when all four of us set out on this seven-week trek across sixteen U.S. states. Now, Dad stopped-up the toilet again, Mom wet her last pair of clean jeans, and David just announced that he was hungry. My head is beginning to pound, and I know this isn’t going to be the easygoing retirement we’d imagined for Linda Brendle takes you on a roller-coaster ride of emotional and spiritual challenges that many families are facing right now. Co-dependency, mental breakdowns, and finding love after divorce are just a few of the issues weaved into this journey of caregiving. Whether you’re looking for an inspirational story to help teach you how to “let go and let God,” considering becoming the caregiver for one of your own parents, or are just looking for an entertaining travel book, this story is sure to strike a tender nerve. 

Release Date: July 1, 2014

Author Bio: After 15 years as a family caregiver, Linda began writing to encourage, inspire and
amuse other caregivers. She loves to travel and since retiring has traveled mostly by
motorcycle and RV. She and her husband live in a small East Texas town where she
gardens, writes and attends church.

  2. Thank you for taking the time to blog about Linda's wonderful book. I really hope people come to see the unique value offered in this book (there is a chance that any one of us could become a caregiver). So, I truly appreciate you helping us spread the word about it. Next big date: July 1st! This book will be a perfect way to gear up towards a celebration of freedom and independence. ;-)

  3. Sara, thank you so much for taking part in my cover reveal. I hope that sharing my story will help others who are already caring for loved ones or might one day find themselves in that situation. Helping others gives some meaning to the otherwise meaningless struggle Mom and Dad went through with Alzheimer's and dementia.
    Blessings,
    Linda

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
