It sounds as if a robot is reading this. Please authors, don’t read your own books.

Review #2

Thank you to #NetGalley, the authors and the publisher for providing me with a digital copy of this book prior to publication in exchange for my review. Four Umbrellas by June Hutton and Tony Wanless is the story of Tony Wanless and the years leading up to and following his Alzheimer’s diagnosis in his early sixties. June had suspected that something was not right for years. She had noticed that Tony was becoming confused and forgetful and when he had a fall, June thought that Tony might have had a stroke and took him for testing. He had numerous tests, including memory tests and doctors thought he might have a mild cognitive impairment as a result of his stroke and the fall. June questioned the validity of this diagnosis and continued her search for answers as to what was happening to Tony. She was determined to get to the root of the problem and eventually she did but it took a lot of effort on her part. She gives excellent advice, telling the reader to be an advocate for your loved one, speak up on their behalf, do not be shy, and document everything you observe and everything doctors tell you. It might surprise the reader to learn that in her quest for the truth, she discovered that Alzheimer’s is really not just an old person’s disease.

Review #3

This is a heartbreaking story to tell. June and Tony have a good life. They are both writers and Tony writes for a financial paper. He is adept in a few languages, has an engineering background and is brilliant in math. When he starts losing items and finds them in odd spots, experiences a loss of interest June attributes it to a mini stroke and they spend years trying to get a diagnosis.

The story is not written in a chronological order and June’s recall at times doesn’t seem reliable as to when events occurred. It is written from her perspective with emails from Tony interspersed giving his side of the story. Overall, I didn’t feel emotion as I was reading. Having dealt with dementia when I took care of my dad in my home I am aware of the level of fear, frustration and exhaustion it takes and I never got that impression. It all seemed very dry and matter of fact. At times I felt like I was reading the notes made in preparation for writing the book and not the book itself.

Overall it was an important story to tell. I think it will be helpful to anyone who is facing the task of being a caregiver.

Thank you to Netgalley and Dundurn Press for the opportunity to read this book.
