How difficult it is to watch someone lose their mental faculties. How much harder when this someone is beloved, central to your life. Be Brave: A Wife’s Journey Through Caregiving is Florrie’s Munat's story of caring for her husband Chuck. Florrie struggles with anguish, shock, anger, and grief as Chuck’s dementia progresses and turns her world upside-down. But through time, Florrie clears a ground of acceptance within herself. And in that clearing, compassion grows—allowing for times of beauty, humor, and profound love.
