Meanwhile her husband Otto waits patiently at home, left only with his memories. Their neighbour Russell remembers too - and he still loves Etta as much as he did more than fifty years ago, before she married Otto.

Etta and Otto
A really touching story that tells the story of Etta and Otto's life, mingled with the confusion of Etta's early stages of dementia. I really enjoyed the imagery Emma Hooper creates throughout the book. Be patient, it's not a confusing read. It's calm and sympathetic, and a a beautiful story of people sharing a life time of love.

Gently paced, finely crafted.
I loved the tone of the narrator, perfectly suited to the book which gathered me in and had me entranced... I listened to the whole book in one sitting. Not great if you like a neat finish to a book, as the narrative to this leaves you wondering what happened after... A great pace, a sense of human scale lives, with interwoven narratives as the characters navigate larger tragedies, set against a wild and expansive backdrop of Canadian countryside.
