About the book
When Reverend G hears the devastating diagnosis — dementia with the possibility of early-onset Alzheimer’s — she struggles with the pain of forgetting those she loves and the fear of losing her connection with God. With the help of her friends at the assisted living facility, Bert, a farmer from Oklahoma, Roxie, the stressed-out activities director and Gabriel, a cat with the gift of forecasting death, she soon discovers there’s humor to be found in forgetting part of the Lord’s Prayer, finding her iron in the freezer and losing a half-gallon of ice cream. And she discovers that while the question she wants to ask is, ‘Why,’ the answer really is, ‘Who.’

About the author
A FINALIST FOR GRACE AWARDS Applause for THE UNRAVELING OF REVEREND G: From the opening pages of THE UNRAVELING OF REVEREND G, RJ Thesman grips the readers in a poignant and humorous tale of a minister facing Alzheimer’s. Told in the first person, Reverend G—Gertrude, a name she hates—relates her path to forgetfulness while never forgetting the One who made us all. The tale will make the reader laugh at the outlandish things Reverend G does, cry over her increasing loss of memory and rejoice in how God still uses her despite her disability. Even when she must live in an assisted living facility, Reverend G hears from God and ministers, and even finds romance once again. ~ Grace Awards 2012 Women’s Fiction Judges Team
