“I wish Searching for Cecy could somehow be mandatory reading for all carepartners. It is impossible not to feel the salty Maine waves blow across your cheek as you read and re-read Judy’s compassionate poetry.” — Joanne Koenig-Coste, author of Learning To Speak Alzheimer’s
In this beautifully written and illustrated tribute, poet Judy Prescott reflects on her mother’s unexpected journey through the tribulations of Alzheimer’s and her own struggle to find peace.
Each poem is paired with artwork contributed by members of the Prescott family, visually illuminating the uncertainty that prevails when a loved one braves a devastating illness.
Prescott’s poignant and intimate verse offers solace to those facing the challenges of Alzheimer’s today, as well as their family and friends. A $1 donation from each copy sold will be made to the Alzheimer’s Association of Maine.
