"This book is important to every mother and daughter, and to every woman who wants to be one." MAYA ANGELOU.

"This generous gift of a book explores the mystery of how doing the right thing can, in the end, become infinitely more." TOMMY HAYS

"Who knew aging, memory-impaired mothers could surprise their reluctantly dutiful daughters? Jo's counter-intuitive take on caring for Mama Jo speaks to the resilience in late-life family care relationships. Jo delighted participants at Duke's Alzheimer's conference by encouraging them to seek fresh, positive and personal perspectives on caring." LISA P. GWYTHER, MSW, co-author The Alzheimer's Action Plan: A Family Guide, Director of Duke Aging Center Family Support Program

"A wonderfully told love story for everyone." JULIE KLAM "Two stubborn spirits come together in a shocking burst of love." SARAH KERNOCHAN "Hilarious, poignant, and utterly relevant. And her mother I adored this book." HOPE EDELMAN

"A wise, funny, and honest memoir. I couldn't put it down." NELL SCOVELL
