At first, I was reluctant to read this new novel by Mr. Fischer since my dad is suffering from Alzheimer’s, and I was afraid it might be too painful. Well, I’m glad I read it. It was a realistic and heartwarming story about love, loyalty, and family bonds. I found myself rooting for Hanna — the protagonist — whose mother was drawn, day by day, into the world of this frightening disease. All members of the family, though, were just as interesting as each one of them, in their own way, tried to make amends and adjust to the new environment and role shifting. I highly recommend this wonderful tribute to a brave woman and all our loved ones who suffer from this devastating disease.

Notwithstanding the fact that the cover to this book is breathtaking, the pages had me questioning my own mortality and how my children would react if - God forbid I had Alzheimer's. You realize while reading just how it affects families. Watching someone you once looked up to who was larger than life - dwindle away in the confines of a debilitating disease is beyond comprehension. And to think that you have no power over it is gut wrenching. The characters are very real and life like - real in the sense that I felt as though I was in the room. I could feel the angst, the fear and sadness. Each chapter grabbed at my heart and drew me further into this journey. Another thing I found very interesting - the profound simplicity of the chapter titles. A well thought out plan by the author, I would venture to guess. You will not regret reading this book - It is a beautifully written tale of soulful journey with an everyday family as they seek the validation to accept and let go. I give this book a well deserved Five Stars! Well written Mr. Fischer!

“Time to Let Go” is a novel you will savor from the beginning to the end. Hanna, an attractive stewardess, now on the other side of forty has her own dilemma while dealing with her mother who is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. After a horrifying incident while flying, she attempts to take refuge at her childhood home with Walter, her father, and Biddy, her ailing mother. This experience helps to reshape some of Hanna’s ideas about life, love, and relationships while prompting her to make decisions that will put her on another course. I genuinely enjoyed the way Mr. Fischer delved into the personal dynamics amongst Hanna, her parents, and her two brothers. The interchanges between Hanna and her parents may seem all too familiar to those in similar situations, and while there is ample comic relief coming from Biddy, it is tinged with the very real sadness of this condition. Karim, a supporting character, befriends Hanna and also plays a significant role in influencing the outcome of her personal journey. While most people have had an experience dealing with a person affected by Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, no matter how brief the encounter, there are those who have had to live with it on a daily basis. In this story, Hanna never regrets having rearranged her life to more fully include her family, even though in reality, this is not always the case. Compassion and understanding go a long way in any comparable scenario, and Christoph Fischer makes this point very well. This is a book that will tug at your heartstrings, and I highly recommend it.
