Review: Slightly Dented Halos by LA Jackson

5 Stars
Slightly Dented Halos
Author: LA Jackson
Pages: 202
Slightly Dented Halos is a true accounting of the author's life after inviting her elderly in-laws to come live in her home. It spans over a five and half year course of their time together.

I absolutely loved Ms. Jackson's Slightly Dented Halos I have never been one to really read true life accounts, but this was one that the description just caught my attention and would not let go.

I felt so many emotions through out reading this novel-- curiosity, intrigue, amusement, shocked, and sadness-- enough to tear up near the end. I had to sympathize with LA in parts of the novel as I could hardly imagine how she felt even with the dialogue. But there were parts between Betts, the mother in-law and LA, that I could not help laughing about.

This book to me, hardly felt like one. Ms. Jackson really brought it to life, making me feel I was sitting beside her while she spoke it.

The emotion of the book as I said before was bountiful. It was very real the difficulties endured by in-laws and LA and her husband, Reed. Gus, Betts husband, was mostly wheelchair bound after having a stroke at the age of 29. Betts was very...everywhere. She was very much devoted to the Lord and as sweet and generous as anyone could be.

The author recounts some stories of elderly care in the novel with them as well. She also goes into some of the conflict and difficulties of putting family member(s) in a nursing home.

In this novel I saw LA and her husband do something that I don't believe most people would do for their elderly parents-- in-laws or otherwise. I saw them take in two people who was in need of physical/emotional help and needed the stability and love of their family around them. It was truly an engrossing read and something I will not forget.

I would recommend this novel to anyone.
