Harden, Marcia Gay.
Most people know Garden as an Academy Award actor, but in this memoir Marcia tells the story of her mother and her descent into Alzheimer's disease. Garden breaks the stories into seasons, and shares her stories of growing up in Maryland, her mother's love of flower arranging, and the constant moving that seems standard protocol for the family of an US Navy officer. Yes, there's a sense of melancholy that hangs over the book, but the real legacy are the memories and the bond of love shared between Marcia and her mother.
