The publicity information for this books states:

This is the true story of a mother who rose to the challenges of surviving the Second World War with family intact, lived an intensely passionate and deeply troubled personal life afterward, endured the perils of cultural displacement, and suffered the loss of her identity as she drifted toward an agonizingly slow death from an affliction that stole her mind.

This is really a son's story about his mother that takes one from Toronto, Canada back across the Atlantic to northern Europe. It deals with the sad fact that we, as humans, often reside upon this earth a good number of years and when we are no longer here, our own close relatives, when asked who or what we stood for, they cannot find the words to truly define us or our lives.

Sadly, Alzheimer's and other horrific diseases like it, take the most valuable asset that we have, our mind and leaves us an empty shell of what we used to be.

As Americas' population grows older, our families are faced with this issue on a daily basis.

Would I recommend this rather convoluted story to others? YES
