Mar 2021 Book Club Author Interview With Susan A. Marshall Author of “Mom’s Gone Missing”

Gary Edward Barg, Editor-in-Chief interviews Susan A. Marshall, author of the book Mom’s Gone Missing.  It is an interesting and a here's-what-unfolded book, a daughter’s experience with a father’s decade-long Alzheimer’s journey and a mother’s lightning fast dementia decline and both of their deaths.

The narrative includes sibling tensions, an array of healthcare, financial and legal decisions, reconciliation of lifelong hurts, and the emotional tsunami that surges through it all.

This book invites you in, encourages you to find familiar thoughts and emotions, and provides compassion for your worst moments, your rawest reactions, and your urge to laugh in sometimes inopportune moments.

This true story of a thoughtful writer’s journey with her parents is written with clarity, honesty, and vulnerability.  Its ultimate wish is to create a community within which to share stories and offer support.  You, in whatever stage of angst or pain, are welcome here.  Http://
