I’m blessed and humbled by the early reviews that All the Dancing Bird is receiving! There are several scattered around the website, but here are three more of my favorites:

“Touching and informative, All the Dancing Birds offers valuable insights into the subjective experience of Alzheimer’s disease.”
—Daniel Kuhn, author of Alzheimer’s Early Stages: First Steps for Families, Friends, and Caregivers

All the Dancing Birds offers a powerful and painfully beautiful peek into the mind of Lillie Claire, a vibrant woman struck in her mid-50s with Alzheimer’s disease. In this perceptive novel, author Auburn McCanta renders a fictional tale with factual punch as she shines light on the ways this tragic illness touches friends, family and the critical “second family” of nurses and caregivers. Alzheimer’s eventually robs Lillie Claire, a poet, of her treasured words. But her story, so lovingly tendered with clarity and wit, demonstrates the triumph of love. All the Dancing Birds offers great insight to, and love for, those touched—and ultimately changed—by the mystery of a mean disease.”
—Drew Myron, poet, Beyond Forgetting: Poetry and Prose about Alzheimer’s Disease

“If your life is touched by Alzheimer’s, you need this book. It will help you understand the experience of having Alzheimer’s—and inspire you to interact with loved ones touched by it in more meaningful ways.
—Cynthia D’Amour, bestselling author, national speaker, advocate
