Touching Account of Elder Care by Breakout Author
Slightly Dented Halos by LA Jackson is a funny but realistic account of one family's struggle with the merging of two households when they realize that their elderly parents can no longer live on their own.
“Ms. Jackson is a highly talented story-teller, and initial reviews of her book have been amazing,” says Michelle Halket, Creative Director for ireadiwrite Publishing. “This book paints a very accurate picture of what life is like when you merge two very different households into one. It is a timely and humorous tale of loyalty, courage, love and the unbreakable bonds that tie families together through good times and bad.”
From comical anecdotes of combining two disparate household styles to the heartbreaking depiction of the father-in-law as his life ends, the author provides a panoramic look into her life. The largest generation in history is entering the golden years, with adult children left to make decisions about the care of their elders. Slightly Dented Halos provides no instruction but rather a sense of togetherness and empathy for others facing the choices of nursing homes, elder care, hospice and end-of-life issues.
ireadiwrite Publishing is also the publisher of other best-selling creative non-fiction books such as All in God’s Time, My Sons by Geoff Moeller; the memoir of a father who lost two sons in a car accident and Can You Hear Me Now? by Annie O’Sullivan about her own story of years of abuse and healing.
Slightly Dented Halos will be released on March 18, 2011 and will be available in all major and selected independent online bookstores.
