Abstract:

"Just days after turning fifty, Martha Maddux, a spirited mother and civic activist, was told she had Alzheimer?s disease. She and husband Carlen felt as though they?d been shoved out of a plane 10,000 feet up, with nothing to grab but themselves. A Path Revealed is not about the fallout from an insidious disease that extended over seventeen years. It is the story of a path of hope emerging during the darkest hours - a path that lifted Carlen and Martha above the devastating symptoms of this disease. Carlen traveled with Martha to the backwoods of Kentucky, where the quiet presence of a Catholic nun revealed a hidden path. He was forced to slow down as he traced this path halfway around the world to Australia, retreated weekends to a monastery, embraced meditation, and landed all alone in Thomas Merton?s cabin. This story conveys a message of hope and joy in the midst of an almost overwhelming tragedy"--The publisher.
