Heart wrenching

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this story. the characters were people you could really visualise and care about.Although it involves a sad subject (early dementia) the story had a lot of hope and humour and dealt with a difficult subject in a thought provoking and sensitive manner

So sad

I normally enjoy very much Ms Rowan Coleman's books but this one was far too sad for me. I understand it is an interesting insight on what it can means to have in your family a person suffering from Alzheimer but I really found it hard to bear hearing about the fading link berween husband and wife due to the illness, though the author found a very clever twist to eventually uplift the feeling of utter sadness I had regarding that situation. It is not a bad book at all, and the performances are excellent, it is just a bit tough for me. But it may well not be for you.
