Praise for Alison’s Debut Novel
Ladybird Adrift

“Love knows no age barriers, and in Ladybird Adrift, Alison Downs writes a bittersweet novel about love between a younger woman and an older man. As their love grows, so does the realization that a health issue threatens their relationship and happiness. This moving and tender love story highlights the heartbreak of a loved one’s descent into Alzheimer’s, depicted through the eyes of both victim and caregiver. This book will move every reader’s heart as it opens a window into this pitiless illness that has no cure.”  Lurlene McDaniel, best-selling author of Losing Gabriel: a love story



“Downs takes the reader on an unapologetic journey through love in the face of Alzheimer’s. When you read this book, you will appreciate how precious each small moment can be. Prepare to be moved…” From the Editor
