MPR: 'No Saints Around Here' is a caregiver's story
When writer Susan Allen Toth's husband James was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, she decided to put her career on hold. The couple enjoyed time together as Toth transitioned into a new role as her husband's primary caregiver. That experience is chronicled in Toth's new memoir "No Saints Around Here: A Caregiver's Days." The book chronicles the gamut of emotions that Toth went through while taking care of James. She spoke with Morning Edition host Cathy Wurzer about the book and what it means to be a caregiver.
