Sonja Yoerg’s novel All the Best People celebrates the search for identity and grace in the most ordinary of lives. A Vermont native, Yoerg sets the novel in her home state in the 1970s, where Carole LaPorte has a so-called ordinary life but fears ending up just like her mother – locked in a mental institution. The Wide Circumference of Love by Marita Golden is a moving African American family drama of love and devotion in the face of Alzheimer’s disease. As her husband’s memory wavers and fades, Diane Tate and her children must reexamine their connection to who Gregory once was before early onset Alzheimer’s— and learn to love the man he has become.
