By Dorothy M. Kingsbury and Edwin C. Kingsbury

When memory lapses and a CAT scan reveals a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease, 72-year–old Dorothy Kingsbury sets out to write her life story. As she searches for her earliest thoughts, she turns to her life diary, thus interspersing little Dorothy, and then older Dorothy, with the present Dorothy. Despite being first rescued by a wise and loving aunt, then by a religious experience, and finally by a devoted husband, Alzheimer’s silences her song and that caring husband becomes her voice. Tender, candid, and wise, Dorothy’s Song is much more than a memoir. It’s a melody whose tune stays with us, even after the music fades.
