WHEN ALL IS LOST, FAMILY BEGS TO BE FOUND.


Elizabeth Miller is a thirty-four-year-old mama’s girl facing a crisis. Her divorced mother Janice receives a deadly diagnosis and becomes a volatile patient, and her fractured family tailspins toward their last resort—legal guardianship with disastrous fallout.

Elizabeth soon exposes her mother’s long-held secret, which lies at the root of her family’s problems. With the lines blurred between right and wrong, she travels a path of reconciliation through the heartland of elder care in a family saga as memorable as Still Alice and as poignant as We Are Not Ourselves.

From the Great Depression in Nebraska to the 1970s divorce boom in Illinois, Brought To Our Senses chronicles the lives of five generations of family over seventy-five years. The rocky relationships of four siblings complicate efforts to care for an aging parent diagnosed with the mother of all maladies in the new millennium.
