Inside the O'Briens

If you were gripped by "Still Alice" or "Left Neglected" you will definitely enjoy reading this latest novel by Lisa Genova. In the same manner that she was able to describe what it is like to experience Alzheimer's disease from the inside, in this new book Genova tackles Huntington's disease. HD is a lethal neurological disease with no treatment or cure, with a 50 percent chance of being inherited by the next generation. This novel tells the poignant story of a close-knit Irish Catholic family struggling to cope with this devastating reality. At times heart-breaking to read about, the author also manages to infuse the story with much hope,love, and spiritual strength.
