More and more people are affected by the three A's: anger, alcoholism, and Alzheimer's disease

Within the pages of Patricia Mary Mayer’s book, Finding Rita ($21.49, paperback, 9781545640784; $9.99, ebook, 9781545640791), readers will join the author on her heartbreaking journey of her mother’s battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

Finding Rita is a daughter’s experience with her mother as she faces emotional issues of anger and alcoholism and ultimately succumbs to Alzheimer’s. It demonstrates the struggle everyone affected by this tragic disease endures.

Many readers will agree Finding Rita is relatable because it contains Mayer’s experiences more than just the anguish Alzheimer’s brings to loved ones, as she has woven comedy, tragedy, and challenges into the story.

“More and more people are affected by the three A's: anger, alcoholism, and Alzheimer's disease,” says Mayer. “These should not be kept secret. Sharing with someone else may help them become aware that they are not alone, and provide some comfort.”

Patricia Mary Mayer was born and raised in New York City. Writing became her comfort zone as a child and she kept it mostly secret until she was in her thirties, as it was her way of escaping.

Xulon Press, a division of Salem Media Group, is the world’s largest Christian self-publisher, with more than 12,000 titles published to date. Finding Rita is available online through xulonpress.com/bookstore, amazon.com, and barnesandnoble.com.
