Every Waking Moment - By Chris Fabry

Every Waking Moment is a story about
Treha, a custodian in an assisted living facility, who has an incredible gift.  She has a unique ability of relating to the elderly patients and helping those who might be considered lost to find their way back.  

Devin is filming a documentary about the residents at Dessert Gardens, the same nursing facility where Treha works. After an unlikely meeting, Devin becomes interested in Treha's extraordinary ability and shifts the focus of his documentary to tell her story.  As details are revealed, the documentary begins unlocking her past.

The chapters alternate between Treha's    story and scenes from the documentary. Having the documentary interspersed throughout the novel was an great idea, but I thought it was a bit confusing and the scenes were often unrelated to what was going on. 

I have enjoyed other books by Chris Fabry, but this one was just ok.  Treha is an interesting character, but I found the details of her life to be too unrealistic, and I just couldn't get into this plot.
