Description

WINNER OF THE 2013 FINCH MEMOIR PRIZE

Green Vanilla Tea is a story of compassion and courage in the face of a deadly and little understood illness. Above all, it is a love story.

Marie Williams watches helplessly as an undiagnosable condition debilitates her husband, Dominic, in both body and mind. As the condition develops, the normally devoted family man and loving partner seems to disappear beneath an expressionless face and a relentless desire to walk and walk and walk at all hours of the day and night.

In a compelling story that spans both joy and sadness, Marie Williams writes about the bonds in her family, her sons’ love for their father, the spirit that sustains them all during the most testing of experiences and about the struggle they faced in dealing with the inexplicable.

Reading group notes and questions are included in the book.

  1. Joan Moss

    A book that talks honestly to the emotions and bone weariness of continual care for a dearly loved relative with dementia
    Or related mental deterioration. The effects on a family and relationships in it.
    This book is a rich resource for caregivers and people dealing in the increasing load of in home issues.
    Thank you for your personal story.
    May the blessing of your journey be the help and heart you are giving to others.

    I have passed my copy to my sister who is doing a dementia course.
