"There are people who try hard to forget their problems. All Ruby wants to do is remember... Ruby Donaldson has been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease, and she'll be damned if she won't straighten out her troubled family before she no longer knows how. Ruby spent years fighting to hold on to the home her grandmother built on Ward's Island. The only way she can ensure that her younger, mentally scarred daughter Grace can live there for the rest of her life is to convince her older daughter, Liz, to sober up and come home. Ruby always thought she'd have a lifetime to make things right, but suddenly time is running out. She has to put her broken family back together quickly while searching for a way to deal with the inevitable- and do it with all the grit, stubbornness, and unstoppable determination that makes Ruby who she is...until she's Ruby no longer."--Back cover.

Sometimes people do not act the way we would like them to, or speak in ways that we would like to hear. Characters in books are the same. If they were perfect, there would be no room for growth or change. In fact, nothing in life is more boring than perfection.

I was very disappointed and put it down after the first 75 pages. It could have been an interesting novel, but I didn't need to depress my brain into such pittiful language and attitude/low morals.
