When most members of the Reiswig family reach their 40s, something in their demeanor changes. A normally responsible father assigns a dangerous farm chore to a much-too-young son. A vigilant grandfather drives in front of an oncoming train. And they all develop the thousand mile stare a wistful, blank gaze off into the distance, as though they are trying to find the missing pieces of themselves. A compelling and beautifully written personal account of one family s quest to beat this most dreaded disease. Each family member afflicted or not has to find their own way to meet this challenge.
