The Warrior with Alzheimer’s by Stephen Woodfin
Named by Kirkus Reviews as one of the best books of 2013.
When WWII veteran Woody Wilson realizes that Alzheimer’s is about to ground him forever, he goes on the run. Soon, he finds himself in a criminal justice system gone haywire. Thrown into events he neither controls nor understands, he demonstrates in his last heroic battle the depth of his inner resolve never to fail those he loves.
This fast-paced legal thriller is a poignant story of threadbare yet resilient love, and a scathing indictment of America’s refusal to come to grips with the reality of Alzheimer’s Disease and related forms of dementia.
