Doing one’s duty in caring for a mother with dementia is pushing Helen Knightly over the edge. As her mother leaves behind every vestige of humanity she once possessed, Helen is faced with a monster and an irresistible urge to dispatch of this nightmare. This is a gripping novel of a caregiver who felt compelled to cross that line – and the whirlwind of events that follow. Definitely a page-turner from the first chapter.
