This novel was an intriguing insight into the world of dementia. It centres around two women. Anna has early-onset Alzheimers, and at the age of thirty-eight has gone to live in a residential care facility. Eve’s life has been shattered, she is now a single mother and needs to take a job at the facility. The story weaves around love and relationships, and the reader comes to care about the fates of these two women. I did think that a few of the characters were almost too good to be true, but it’s heartening to think there might be such people in the world. This is an easily read, enjoyable, and hopeful story.

when life has turned out dreadfully.”
