Editorial Reviews

"The author covered some of the most difficult situations families are dealing with, and I can see
our caregivers connecting to the husband and son." - Meg E. Boyce,
LMSW, Vice President Programs and Services Alzheimer's Association, Poughkeepsie,
NY

"Marianne Sciucco
not only did a wonderful job writing a beautiful novel about a couple
experiencing dementia, but did it in a thoughtful, authentic, humane
way." Donna
Davies, LCSW, Alzheimer's Association,Hudson
Valley/Rockland/Westchester, NY Chapter

"BLUE HYDRANGEAS
traces a couple's struggle with Alzheimer's in an effective story that doesn't
pull its punches, but remains compassionate and absorbing." - Liz
Lynch for IndieReader

"What a touching
account of a couple's journey into Alzheimer's and of the love that never
succumbed to the disease! Marianne Sciucco captured all the levels of feelings
and fears that accompany this journey--the doubting, the rationalization that
everything is ok, the hoping....and finally the acceptance. Most of all,
she captured the love that so often brings out strengths that will help
caregivers and their loved ones as they face this together. A truly remarkable
story!" - Marilynn Garzione, author of Released to the Angels: Discovering the Hidden
Gifts of Alzheimer's

"Blue Hydrangeas is, by far, the most tender love story I've read in a very long time. While not a 'happily ever after' love story, Blue Hydrangeas is sure to be one you will ponder for some time after you have finished reading it." - Lee Ambrose for Story Circle Book Reviews
