You can lose your memory, but you never forget how to love…

Lana Green has a talent for pushing people away. As a writer, she’s perfectly happy to be left alone with her books. But when she meets Jack Buchanan and Nancy Ellis Hall, Lana’s solitary life will change for ever.

Nancy has dementia, and social services believe this makes her vulnerable. But Lana can see the funny, brilliant woman underneath the illness.

As Lana and Jack struggle to keep Nancy out of a care home, Lana starts to question everything she ever thought mattered.

Because what’s the point in stories, if there is no one to share them with?

 

MY REVIEW

I loved the cover for this book as soon as I saw it and I was immediately intrigued and knew it was one I would want to read as soon as I looked at the blurb!

The book flowed really well, I loved the characters and was really pleased with how the subject of dementia was dealt with in the book.  It was a genuine pleasure to read and  could really sympathise with the characters, the book was well thought through and it is definitely one I would be looking to recommend – it is heart warming and emotional.

Four stars from me for this one, a very enjoyable story and as the book says, sometimes, happiness can be found where you least expect it…
