This is a non-fiction story. The tone is informal and told in First person.

Not much on full development of characters, scenes, and more . . .

But looking for structure, you won't find it behind these book pages. For starters, there is NO structure when caregiving. Caregivers, a task, where one can be all over the place. Suzette is living proof of one’s duties as caregiver, wife, mother, worker, and a DPOA.
Personally, I don't know this author (Suzette Brown) but was able to follow her clearly through the journey. Unless, one has walked the shoe prints, it’s understandable finding difficulty in trailing through the path. And this author expresses that so profoundly in her story. How so? Well, there’s evidence in those who surrounded her circle expecting her task to be a simplified one. After all, they never stepped up to take the lead; just peering in through the peepholes ─ and giving advice from the side line.
Although there were a few editing issues, all-in-all it doesn't take from the content. From the onset, it would have been nice to know there's sensitive language. Overall, the story gives “a heads up” about the toxic relationship, and is an educational insight for us all. As touching as it was to read: “Her beautiful blue eyes barely opened as she looked from my sister to me. We watched as her half-closed eyes followed us, aware that we were close. . . . We told her that Daddy was waiting for her. . . .”
Okay, a tear did drop from my eyes. Throughout the read, I too felt I took that journey alongside Suzette’s shoe prints ‘til the end. To this author, thank you for allowing us into your walk of life. ( )
