About the Book
FLYING TO THE MOON: A Mother and Daughter's Journey Through Alzheimer's tells of the enduring devotion of a daughter and her beloved mother, their lives imperiled by an abusive marriage and a debilitating disease.

As Ivy's awareness diminishes and Jennifer's marriage unravels, they come together to embrace a new reality accentuated by poetry, piano duets and their celebration of the nonsensical.

Once a self-reliant single mother in control of her life, Jennifer returns to her art and discovers a newfound confidence and direction, her mother resolute in support despite the ravages of Alzheimer's.

Set in vibrant, multicultural Miami, this affectionate account of a mother and her daughter's journey touches on universal themes of loss, survival and empowerment.

Poignant, honest and inspiring, Flying to the Moon offers hope to everyone affected in some way by this tragic affliction.
