How does a parent’s age impact one’s life? For Austine Royer Smith, it means dropping everything and going back home to be with family. She had to leave her home and decent job to live with her aging mother during her final years. Present Bouquets tells her tale as she experiences the ups and downs of being a caregiver.

In the words of Donna Ford of US Review of Books: “This small book is perfect reading for caregivers and especially for grown children blessed with an aging parent.”

At first, she didn’t want to go back to the place filled with “too many unhappy memories.” Among her six siblings, she was the least likely candidate for the job. But the thought of her old mother spending the rest of her natural life unattended broke her heart. So she accepted the challenge, and she is now grateful for making that decision.

“It wasn’t easy, trust me. But becoming my mother’s caregiver gave me the chance to heal the pain of the past. I’ll always be grateful for that,” said Austine.
