Check out Sybil Lockhart (Literary Mama Reviews Editor and Mama in the Middle columnist) book, Mother In The Middle: A Biologist’s Story of Caring for Parent and Child, on Barnes and Noble’s Rave Reviews From Our Readers.
Sybil Lockhart, a Berkeley neurobiologist, became a “mother in the middle” when she was pregnant with her second daughter and her mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. What makes Sybil’s story different, and so powerful, is that she understood the neurological processes, by turns exciting and devastating, that were taking place in the brains of those she loved. Interweaving her scientific expertise with her own complicated emotions, she writes with elegant simplicity and breathtaking honesty about biology’s inevitable, powerful effects on the people around her.
