Free Fiction Monday: Elegy for Piano and Three Voices
When Alzheimer’s takes Stacey’s mother, Stacey gives up everything—her career, her music—to take care of her. Until one lonely night, when caretaking becomes too much, Stacy sits at the piano and plays Bach.
She hopes to escape into the comfort of classical music. But what she discovers in the music—about her mother, her family, herself—proves far more enlightening than she ever imagined.

My father died of Alzheimer’s and my mother has dementia. This spoke to me so much. My brother helps though ? Thank you.
You’re welcome. I’m so sorry you’re going through this.
Thanks. It’s ok. I knew it would be difficult. We have live-in care because we both have young children. And I have skipped the difficult but of getting Mum to agree to having carers because they were already there for Dad and she was fine with them staying.
