Publisher's Description

Becky Kennedy seemingly has it all beautiful daughters who are successful in their own right; a thriving law practice, and a condo that overlooks the Gulf of Mexico with sunsets casting orange, red and purple at the end of each day. But a closer view tells the rest of the story.



Becky has been a primary caregiver for her mother over the last twenty-two years. As Alzheimer's has robbed her mother's memory, Becky and her father have continued their faithful care for her. Then, just two short years ago, Becky lost her husband in an automobile accident that left her struggling to cope with the grief of that loss and the day-to-day decline of the mother she loves.



Soul Song dives deep into the connection of a daughter to her mother in the final stages of life, when memory is gone and faith sustains, while also experiencing the joy of her relationship with her daughters as their futures grow and their paths are revealed. In the end, faith, family, and love endure all in this compelling story.

    This book was as expected, and yet was much more. It was about a family's journey through a parent's struggle with Alzheimer Disease, just as expected. It was about hope and healing, just as expected. But what really was more than expected was seeing a true picture of what a life walked in the Hope of Christ looks like in the midst of struggle. It shows how there can be joy, even in pain, even in difficulty, when we know the Healer.

    It was also more in that it didn't end in death, but in life. Life goes on—it continues its march even in the midst of the struggle, and it continues its march even after the struggle is over. Life goes on. And I find myself very interested to see where this family goes, where their life's journey will take them, in the future.

    This book can bring some peace and healing if you are or have walked this journey of loss of a loved one, especially after a long-term battle with disease, as my family has done. May it encourage you as it has me.

    I was gripped as I read through this family's ordeal, their sorrow and their joy. Their trust in God and their faithfulness to Him and their family was an inspiration and will encourage caregivers going through one of the most heart-wrenching experiences a family can endure - the long-term care of a terminally ill loved one. I wept and rejoiced with this family as I read the book and felt as if I was one of them.

    This book is well-written. I have recommended it to several friends who are battling Alzheimer's in their families. It reminds us that our strength comes from our relationship with God and our earthly families. It reminds us that life goes on through the crisis and afterward.

    This is an amazing story. My mother has Alzheimers and the author really captured the emotions and challenges, while still conveying the joy and comfort that faith and family can bring to the situation. I highly recommend this book. I am sure I will read it a second time. I hope she writes another book!

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I am married and have lived in Florida all of my life; in the Orlando area for the last fifteen years.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  My mother had Alzheimer's for twenty-two years. My faith grew during this time and the role of faith and family was so important.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I want people who are going through long term illness with a family member to feel hopeful and realize that joy and grief can occur together and that faith sustains us even when we feel overwhelmed.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  My mother died five years ago after suffering with Alzheimer's for twenty-two years. I think time has offered perspective but going through all of the details to create this fictional novel was emotional at times.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  Soul Song is the book's title because at the end of my mother's life singing to her was a way that I connected with her. Love for music was something that she and I shared before she was ill and our final shared moments over the last few years of her illness when she couldn't speak.
