Summary
"Fraying chronicles a mother's and a daughter's journey through memory loss and the medical maze. Michele Gierck finds herself suddenly thrust into the role of primary carer, with no map to navigate the world of aged care and medical bureaucracy. The relationship between the spirited, determined 88-year-old protagonist - who refuses to passively accept medical pronouncements - and her daughter is at times difficult, yet always respectful and loving, warm and upbeat. Together they must develop practical coping strategies, draw on a lifetime with each other and hold onto their sense of humour."--Back cover
