Author Genie Zeiger has brought us a beautifully crafted memoir that takes an uncompromising look at the power of the mother-daughter relationship as a beloved mother slowly declines.

"...a loving and fiercely honest account of how the writer coped with her mother Ruth's descent into the maelstrom of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's-related dementia...

What chases away self-pity is her wry sense of humor, her poet¹s delight in close observation, her recognition that any change, even death, can open doors to understanding."

 -O, The Oprah Magazine

"Read this book if you want to laugh and cry - perhaps at the same time.
Read this if you want to grieve what you have lost, or what you never had.

'How I Find Her" is a deeply moving farewell and a quiet celebration that traces the way suffering helps us find ourselves. I wish I had read this book while I was attending my own mother¹s dying. It¹s the finest guide I know."

- Pat Schneider, author of Wake Up Laughing: A Spiritual Autobiography.

"Whether she¹s mourning her losses or celebrating her blessings, Genie Zeiger¹s gorgous work breaks my heart and opens my heart."

 -Sy Safransky, editor The Sun Magazine

"...To return to strong emotion without sentimentality and to deep human reflection without ideology, read Gene’s memoir meditatively. Her words can revive a dormant heart..."

—Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul
