INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER Acclaimed New York Times bestselling author of The Vanishing Velazquez Laura Cumming shares the riveting story of her mother’s mysterious kidnapping as a toddler in a small English coastal village—and how that event reverberated through her own family and her art for decades. In the fall of 1929, when Laura Cumming’s mother was three years old, she was kidnapped from a beach on the Lincolnshire coast of England. There were no screams when she was taken, suggesting the culprit was someone familiar to her, and when she turned up again in a nearby village several days later, she was found in perfect health and happiness. No one was ever accused of a crime. The incident quickly faded from her memory, and her parents never discussed it. To the contrary, they deliberately hid it from her, and she did not learn of it for half a century. This was not the only secret her parents kept from her. For many years, while raising her in draconian isolation and protectiveness, they also hid the fact that she’d been adopted, and that shortly after the kidnapping, her name was changed from Grace to Betty. In Five Days Gone, Laura Cumming brilliantly unspools the tale of her mother’s life and unravels the multiple mysteries at its core. Using photographs from the time, historical documents, and works of art, Cumming investigates this case of stolen identity with the toolset of a detective and the unique intimacy of a daughter trying to understand her family’s past and its legacies. Compulsive, vivid, and profoundly touching, Five Days Gone is a masterful blend of memoir and history, an extraordinary personal narrative unlike any other.
This book is designed to be an easy read for all dealing with someone with Alzheimer's; from the caregiver in the personal home to professional caregivers working in the long term care setting. It includes an overview of dementias as well as ways to cope with behaviors. Communication is also an important aspect covered. Research updates as well as possible resources for the caregiver are included. Activities of daily living and a lifestyle enhancement program are featured. A brief section on the medical side is included but again this book is not designed from the clinical prospective and its focus is toward helping caregivers cope with their current situation of taking care of someone with Alzheimer's. Short summaries of caregivers that found their "light in the tunnel" are included as the last chapter. The first chapter is about taking care of your self because the caregiver will find it a difficult feat to continue to care for someone with Alzheimer's if taking care of themselves is not a priority. The overall goal of the book is to give the caregiver a compass or light to help through the day to day care of the person with Alzheimer's.

Days Gone By is the story of being on our own for the first time. The friends that are made, and the mistakes that are learned from. A story that delves into the relationships created when we are thrust into a new and independent world, trying to find our place. A touching story of love, loss, and friendship.
Dr. Christine Ramsay describes the history of her Chinese Hakka family who migrated to Malaya before the end of the nineteenth century and, by the good fortune of tin-mining and rubber plantations, established for themselves a luxurious lifestyle which included education in the west, art nouveau mansions on Penang's waterfront, fashionable clothes, cars and entertainment and a great deal of 'mahjong'! This book, illustrated with a fascinating collection of photographs, offers glimpses into aspectd of Chinese extended family life which will intrigue and entertain. It also features decorative patterns assembled from rare examples of the historic ceramic tiles used on the walls and floors of early twentieth century Penang mansions. The author left Penang in the 1960s to study science in Australia and has now acheived sufficient 'distance' to look back, objectively, on these 'Days Gone By'.
With the support of my three children, Christie, Tammy and Richard jr. and further encouragement from my niece Debbie and nephew Anthony I was finally able to finish this book. This is a true life story that contains humor, violence, and tragedy & heartbreak, stories of what it was really like to grow up in a 1950's small town. This totally non-fiction book is entertaining as well as sad. I told it as I remembered it, and wrote it exactly as it happened. I am now living in Crystal Lake, Il. and am a proud grandfather of 6 girls and 3 boys and cannot wait for them to read this.
