Life Lessons from a Bakerís Dozen:
1 Mother, 13 Children, and their Journey to Peace with Alzheimerís

by Kerry Luksic

Special Advance Release, not yet available from bookstores!


While growing up in an Irish Catholic family of fifteen, life was often chaotic for young Kerry Lonergan. Yet through it all, her mother was the source of calmness, juggling everyday living with the patience of a saint and the efficiency of an engineer. Full of humor, drama, and inspiring pearls of wisdom, this story is a tribute to Bobbie Lonergan, an amazing mother who raised thirteen children and who now struggles with Alzheimer's disease. The story begins with Kerry's heartbreaking question, "How can I ever accept the fact that my mother no longer knows who I am?" Kerry finds the answer through a trip down memory lane that brings laughter, tears, and a personal journey that challenges her faith, but leads her back to her mother's most powerful life lesson.

The book also contains a highly useful resources section for anyone whose life has been affected by Alzheimer's disease. It includes Alzheimer's statistics, information about support groups, online resources, and advocacy. These resources are regularly updated and expanded at the authors Web site.

Ten percent of the author's royalties earned from the sale of each paperback will be donated to Alzheimer's research and support programs.
