The Unraveling of Reverend G
When Reverend G hears the devastating diagnosis - dementia with the possibility of early-onset Alzheimer's - she struggles with the pain of forgetting those she loves and the fear of losing her connection with God.
With the help of her friends at the assisted living facility: Bert, a farmer from Oklahoma; Roxie, the stressed-out activities director; and Gabriel, a cat with the gift of forecasting death - Reverend G soon discovers there is humor to be found in forgetting part of the Lord's Prayer, finding her iron in the freezer and losing a half-gallon of ice cream.
And she discovers that while the question she wants to ask is, 'Why,' the answer really is, 'Who.'
