October: They May not Mean To But they Do by Cathleen Schine
Cathleen Schine now explores the quandaries of eldercare through the eyes of a vibrant matriarch who has no interest in aging gracefully. Joy Bergman has stood by her husband for nearly a lifetime, but as he slips further into dementia and their finances dwindle, she faces exasperating choices. When their well-intentioned children try to intervene, they aren’t prepared for their mother’s rebellious streak, especially when an old flame enters her life. A radiant, compassionate look at three generations --- including in-laws, ex-in-laws and same-sex spouses --- THEY MAY NOT MEAN TO, BUT THEY DO is a modern take on timeless questions of love and loyalty.

Within a handful of years, she was so successful that he established a Bureau of Female Detectives and put her in charge of it. She helped save Abraham Lincoln’s life en route to his inauguration, and she worked undercover as a spy for the Union.
