135: How Lulu Lost Her Mind

How Lulu Lost Her Mind by Rachel Gibson

It’s not often you get a mother daughter story, and even less often I read two in a row. Lulu is Lu Anne and the book opens with her mother being kicked out of the care facility she’s been in for the past two years. Patricia suffers from dementia and a love for flirting with any man she sees.

Patricia asks her daughter to “take her home” to Louisiana and the shenanigans begin. It was such a delightful story, even though it’s about the final months of Patricia’s life that are consumed by Alzheimer’s.

I really appreciated the mother daughter story, which is rarer than it should be.
