Great read! Closest I ever got to Emma was seeing "Clueless", but my three grown daughters are big fans. Will be curious to get their perspective, though hopefully years away.

Loved that! I've read Emma many times and somehow never picked up on the caregiving perspective.

Very touching.

I can't wait to read "Emma" again from a new perspective. Thank you for sharing.

Oh, my goodness! I hope you read Emma! This caregiver slant is a bit amusing, but the book as a whole is a wonderful, complicated, funny combination of mysteries, puzzles, and romances.

The quote below hit me between the eyes. It's like when they ask what day it is, or is this morning or night. I always feel like I am crying on the inside when asked that.


"Dr. Scileppi provides a formula for understanding Mr. Woodhouse’s agitation:

Memory loss + anxiety = search for reassurance."
