Book Review

By Barbara Delinsky
Copyright 1995

SHADES OF GRACE deals with aging from the perspective of the person aging, the family, the friends, and all of the others who touch one's life. The focus in SHADES OF GRACE is not just aging but aging rapidly with the loss of cognitive function. Grace has Alzheimer's. Barbara Delinsky deals with all of the ramifications with compassion, understanding, and empathy. She does so by telling an intriguing story of a family whose lives are shattered by both secrets and illness before finding love, forgiveness, and the strength to live.
