					PRAISE FOR
MY MOTHER’S HOUSE, A Memoir
BY ALEXA WOLF


“Fraught with emotion and conflict, full of compassion and
hope, this is a memoir that draws you to it, grabs hold and
won‟t let go.”
 Carolyn Howard-Johnson, multiple award-winning author,
Instructor, The Writers Program, UCLA Extension

“My Mother‟s House should be required reading for anyone who
has a family member or friend at the mercy of America‟s
severely broken health care system.”
 Debra Killeen, pharmacist, researcher, author

“A very personal story... an easy to read introduction to both
Western and natural medicine. I recommend My Mother‟s
House to non-medical people but also to doctors, who should
know how patients feel when they go through Western
medicine and why they look into natural medicine.”
 Huy Hoang, MD

"Beautifully written and moving. The description of the
Alzheimer's course is very nicely done."
Allan Nutkiewicz, MD, brain surgeon

"A heart-wrenching story of a daughter's struggle to care for
her dying mother while coping with her own debilitating
illness. An indictment of our health care system. Powerful.
Moving. Beautifully written."
 Eve La Salle Caram, award-winning novelist, editor, Senior
Instructor in Fiction Writing, The Writers' Program, UCLA
Extension

“With painful honesty, Alexa Wolf writes of love, loss,
suffering, and a heroic struggle-against-the-odds for physical
and spiritual healing. Her memoir will inspire others never to
give up the fight to stay alive.”
Daniel Jaffee, novelist, editor, Instructor, The Writers Program,
UCLA Extension
“A can‟t-put-it-down mother-daughter saga unfolding over fifty
years of heartbreak, inspiration and healing.”
 Jacqueline Marcell, elder care advocate, speaker, radio host
(Coping with Caregiving); author, “Elder Rage, or, Take My
Father...Please!”

“Perfectly captures the personalities involved, through their
humor, love, nerve and the anguish of fighting a medical
system that, even if you have insurance, often does more harm
than good... You‟re right there with the author as she seeks
emotional and spiritual „transcendence‟ after that lethal
battle.”
 Suzann Gage, nurse practitioner, acupuncturist, nutritionist,
speaker, founder/director of Progressive Health Services
