Product Overview

This poignant tale of a woman residing in a nursing home who seems to live more in a world of memories than in the present gives voice to an often not-discussed element of aging. Constance Bergum's delicate watercolor illustrations give soft expression to the continuity of generations and the love that holds a family together during times of hardship.

From the Publisher
Annotation An older woman, apparently suffering from Alzheimer's, doesn't respond to a visit from her daughter and great-grandson. However, the meeting triggers the woman's memory, and as she sits quietly, not moving at all, she reflects on her life. Illustrated with watercolor paintings.

Editors Note 2 Even though Miss Olivia seems unaware of the world around her, when her daughter and her great-grandson come to the nursing home to visit, they awaken happy memories of her past
