Summary
"A story of love outlasting memory: Growing up, Malia and Diane always loved each other despite their differences. Dark straight hair vs. light curly hair. A pleaser vs. a protester. A wallflower vs. a Governor's School standout. But the two sisters don't understand how truly different they view life, death and the caregiving in between until middle age when their beloved parents are whittled away by pancreatic cancer and dementia. As they struggle to care for their elderly parents from opposite coasts over 13 years, sisterly love changes to sisterly shove. In Part I: Saving Mama, Diane quits her job as a pathologist and moves her sick mother form Malia's care in North Carolina to her home in California beach town. In Part 2: Saving Papa, Malia "throws Papa away" into an Alzheimer's assisted living facility near her East Coast home. When he breaks both hips, Diane eldernaps him from what she considers "assisted dying" and doctors him in her West Coast home 24/7 for more than seven years. Will the sisters' relationship be the biggest casualty in this story of love outliving memory? Or will the demon dementia that consumed their dad and all his siblings also take Diane and Malia away from each other at the most vulnerable stage of their lives?"--Page [4] of cover
