Inspiring, candid, and heartfelt, Checking Out: An In-Depth Look At Losing Your Mind by new author, Catherine Graves, is the sort of work of nonfiction that will change lives if readers let it. Proving that fact is all too often stranger than fiction, Graves uses a sharp and tireless wit to reveal the intimate details of the final stretch of her husband’s life.
From first recognizing a change in his behavior and fearing the worst, she must ultimately cope with what follows, though it will be far worse than she ever dreamed or anyone could have imagined. In due course, readers come away with a sense of dignity, humanity, and acceptance for all of what fate allows. For all that is precious in life, one family is dragged to a dark place where survivors ultimately contemplate how to move forward by embracing the toughest year of their lives.
