Description


This edition of the inspirational #1 bestseller draws on a new year of Jann's diaries and her mother's final days.

When beloved singer and songwriter Jann Arden's parents built a house just across the way from her, she thought they would be her refuge from the demands of her career. And for a time that was how it worked. But then her dad fell ill and died, and just days after his funeral, her mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. 

In Feeding My Mother, Jann shares what it is like for a daughter to become her mother's caregiver--in her own frank and funny words, and in recipes she invented to tempt her mom. Full of heartbreak, but also full of love and wonder.
