Book Synopsis

Octogenarian Max Carnes has been married to Lily for more than sixty years, caring for her as dementia claims bits and pieces of her daily. He has some family nearby, but the bulk of the load has been Max's. Their day to day routine revolves around the home, an unchanging repetition of the familiar, until Lily finds an old family snapshot and Max decides to take her on one last car trip to the ocean. Getting out of town does not go unnoticed by his children, but after promising to abide by their directives, Max and Lily set off. From their first stop of many 'braking points', the trip does not go as planned. Adding a 14 year old runaway and then later a volunteer hospital chaplain to the entourage, Max and Lily's journey goes every which way from the plan.

I loved this book. I could not put it down. It would make a great movie.
About The Author
Author bio image
N. Carolyn Kisler is the author of a blog that explores the adventure and sometimes misadventures of aging. She worked as an audiologist for thirty years before retiring to write, paint, and try new things. She recently completed her first quilt. Braking Points is her first novel. Its inspiration in part came from her in-laws as she observed how her father-in-law cared for her mother-in-law as Alzheimer's claimed more and more of her. Carolyn lives with her husband Terry. Their household also includes her brother Tom, a dog named Max and a cat named Sweetie. They live in Kentucky and Florida.
