"Beside the Mountain" by Stefania Silvestri was really some good read. I felt that is was definitely a 'masterpiece' that only Stefania could tell after only living through it with such emotions and courage. "Beside the Mountain" is 'a memoir
about the effect of Early-Onset of Alzheimer's Disease written from a daughters' point of view." As she recalls and conveys a message of finding the strength in it all Stefania is from proud Italian roots...who tells a story of the progression of her father's disease...with all of her trying to cope with all of it from the denial from the family of this disease, even her rebellion with her mother to the daily living of the many struggles that were there and presented to her fathers life and those loved ones around him. In the end yes we find a loss...but so much more can be said ... for their was love.

"Beside the Mountain" is a very real memoir that I can only say it was a wonderful read straight from the heart and so well written. Would I
recommend this read? YES!
