UNFORGETTABLE: SHORT STORIES

UNFORGETTABLE

I RECENTLY WENT THROUGH SIMILAR EVENTS IN MY LIFE AND IT BROUGHT BACK MEMORIES – NOT ALL GOOD!  IT WAS AN EASY, WORTHWHILE READ!
WHAT THE PUBLISHER SAYS:
The nine stories in UNFORGETTABLE: SHORT STORIES are about the presence of the past, the power of memory, and the enduring nature of love. They follow Miriam Batson, the protagonist of Paulette Alden’s earlier short story collection, FEEDING THE EAGLES, into middle age, as she navigates the suicide attempt of one of her college students; the death of a beloved maid from her Southern childhood; the shock and anger of a job rejection possibly due to sex discrimination; and the sudden death of her father. Five of the stories track Miriam’s efforts to stave off putting her mother in a nursing home, as her mother succumbs to Alzheimer’s. Anyone who has experienced such a situation will relate to the poignancy, guilt, and sometimes painful humor involved in caring for a failing parent.
