Angela and the Cherry Tree
by Raphaele Frier and illustrated by Teresa Lima $22.95
Angela wakes up full of hope - she is expecting a visitor. She prepares her hair, puts on perfume and bakes her specialty - shortbread cookies. She waits, impatiently at times, and finally the little girl arrives. Her anxiety dissipates and she is at peace.
Angela and the Cherry Tree provides a touching insight into the mind of a person suffering from dementia. It is beautifully written, evoking many powerful emotions of a life observed and a life remembered; of a present defined by memories.
Angela and the Cherry Tree is a rare and poignant picture book; dealing with a sensitive subject with respect and dignity. Its insights and beauty are derived from attention to detail and stunning illustrations.
