In 1983, Christine Taylor Patten was hired as one of the people who took care of Georgia O'Keeffe, then ninety-six. Also an artist, Patten served as nurse, cook, companion, and friend to the older woman. This intimate account of the year of Patten's employment offers a rare glimpse of O'Keeffe's daily life when she could no longer see well enough to paint.
