From her mother's practice in ikebana to Alzheimer's disease
Ikebana is the beginning of the book as Harden intertwines the flavors of her mother’s life with Harden’s own artistic ways. Harden writes with a cleverness that is honest and shaded with deep emotions. She captures the losses and the many joys of life as her mother moves with poise into a different era, one that slowly sinks into Alzheimer’s disease.
