Searching For Cecy

Searching For Cecy by Judy Prescott

About The Book:
In this beautifully written and illustrated tribute, poet Judy Prescott reflects on her mother’s unexpected journey through the tribulations of Alzheimer’s and her own struggle to find peace. Each poem is paired with artwork contributed by members of the Prescott family, visually illuminating the uncertainty that prevails when a loved one braves a devastating illness. Prescott’s poignant and intimate verse offers solace to those facing the challenges of Alzheimer’s today, as well as their family and friends.

My Thoughts:
This is a very beautifully written book, and such a great tribute to a mother. It is nice to see the artwork accompanied by each poem. It really makes an impression. Watching a loved one essentially passing away right in front of you is possibly the worst thing that a person can go through. The author really puts her thoughts and emotions out there in such an articulate and beautiful way. This is a very nice read.

About The Author:
Judy Prescott, born in Mountain Lakes, New Jersey, has spent the past twenty-five years working as a professional actress. Based in both New York City and Los Angeles, she has performed many roles on stage and screen. Her most recent work includes episodes of True Blood, Grey's Anatomy, Cold Case, Bones, and the films Islander and Hit and Runway.
