"Jack Stewart was a longtime editor at the New York Times. Linda was the U.S. representative of a French publishing consortium. Theirs was a marriage graced with luck, a union from which each drew strength and joy in equal measure. In his early seventies, Jack opted for retirement but continued to work as a freelance editor and literary agent. The passing years were enriched ty travel, strong family ties, and the delight of friendships. Illness descended abruptly one October afternoon. Jack, awaking confused and disoriented from a nap, was rushed to the hospital. There the diagnosis was both swift and horrifying: Alzheimer's disease. It was a pronouncement that instantly overwhelmed all other considerations. Against her husband's loss of self-awareness, Linda quickly found she had no preparation, no defense.
