Just days after turning fifty, Martha Maddux, a spirited mother and civic activist, was told she had Alzheimer’s disease. She and husband Carlen felt as though they’d been shoved out of a plane 10,000 feet up, with nothing to grab but themselves. A Path Revealed is not about the fallout from an insidious disease that extended over seventeen years. It is the story of a path of hope emerging during the darkest hours - a path that lifted Carlen and Martha above the devastating symptoms of this disease.
Carlen traveled with Martha to the backwoods of Kentucky, where the quiet presence of a Catholic nun revealed a hidden path. He was forced to slow down as he traced this path halfway around the world to Australia, retreated weekends to a monastery, embraced meditation, and landed all alone in Thomas Merton’s cabin.
This story conveys a message of hope and joy in the midst of an almost overwhelming tragedy.
Carlen Maddux is a career journalist. For twenty-six years he was editor, president, and owner of the Maddux Report, a business magazine covering the Tampa Bay, Florida, region. He previously was a business writer for the nationally recognized St. Petersburg Times, as it was then named. Martha and Carlen reared their three children, David, Rachel, and Kathryn, in St. Petersburg. A Path Revealed is Carlen's first book.
