Ellie Alexander Synopsis: Underneath the Ash is a memoir by Kate Dyer-Seeley (Ellie Alexander). In her early thirties with the birth of her first child, Kate Dyer-Seeley suddenly finds herself as caregiver for her mother, who is suffering from early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. As Kate’s son, Luke, takes his first steps, her mother struggles to stand. As Luke’s begins to speak, her mother’s words disappear. Kate must learn how to care for their ever-changing needs. To compound matters, Kate has become the family spokesperson and advocate for her mother’s care. She begrudgingly takes on this duty while her extended family refuses to accept the circumstances. Set in the Pacific Northwest with an erupting Mount St. Helens, Underneath the Ash is about more than Alzheimer’s disease. It’s the story of how the deterioration of one person can mirror the deterioration that misunderstanding and denial create in families. It’s the universal story of mother loss, the journey into motherhood and how the two come together.
