Angela and the Cherry Tree

Raphaele Frier

illustrated by Teresa Lima

from the book...

Angela wakes up full of hope - she is expecting a visitor.  She prepares her hair, puts on perfume and bakes her specialty - shortbread cookies. She waits, impatiently at times, and finally the little girl arrives.  Her anxiety dissipates and she is at peace.

Angela and the Cherry Tree provides a touching insight into the mind of a person suffering from dementia.  It is beautifully written, evoking many powerful emotions of a life observed and a life remembered; of a present defined by memories.
