Jan's Story is as much a love story as it is a chronicle of the progression of Alzheimer's. This was one of the hardest books for me to read, not because it's difficult to read but because it just rips at your heart. Reading about Jan and Barry's life together before The Disease and the slow destruction of that life with its progression is gut-wrenching. Jan's Story reminds us to cherish each day and not take even the small moments we have with loved ones for granted. I highly recommend this book to anyone whether you know someone effected by Alzheimer's or not. Chances are one day you will either know someone close to you who will have to go through it or you may even fall victim yourself or become a caregiver.
