Publisher's Summary

Past and present collide when an Alzheimer's patient's fragile memory holds the key to solving mysteries dating back to World War II-including a long lost secret love affair.
Music professor Gus LeGarde is just doing a favor for a friend when he agrees to play piano for church services at a local nursing home. He doesn't expect to be drawn into a new friendship with an elderly Alzheimer's patient dubbed "the music man" or to stumble across a decades-old mystery locked inside the man's mind.
Octogenarian Kip Sterling doesn't know his own name - but he speaks Gus's language, spouting jazz terms like "cadence" and "riff." He's also obsessed with "his Bella," but nobody knows who she is.
When Kip is given a new drug called Memorphyl, he starts to remember bits and pieces of his life. Gus learns Bella was Kip's first and only love, but their relationship was shrouded in scandal. Intrigued, Gus agrees to help search for her. Could she still be alive?
Horrified when the miracle drug suddenly stops working and patients begin to backslide, Gus panics. Can he help Kip find his beloved Bella before all the memories disappear?

- Deedra "I am at that half a century mark in years. I enjoy audiobooks,cats,rats and most days my family,not necessarily in that order!lol"

Very Touching Story.

Would you consider the audio edition of Lady Blues: forget-me-not to be better than the print version?

Possibly. I did enjoy the performance!

What other book might you compare Lady Blues: forget-me-not to and why?

I guess it reminded me a little of The Notebook just because it was a great love story and involved Alzheimers. I hate to make that comparison because I'm probably one of the few people that really hated The Notebook and I truly loved this story.

Which scene was your favorite?

I liked the scenes where he was getting his memory back.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to it in the car, but often I did not want to get out once I reached my destination.

Any additional comments?

I really did love this story. There were a couple of holes in it for me regarding why they couldn't identify him, but I chose to allow my "willing suspension of disbelief" to take over. That's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars.
