Such a wonderful story .. one of those ones you want everyone to read. Couldnt stop telling hubby about every chapter!!
Claire early 40's just wants to run away. However, she does not get far before she realises that she is already forgetting where she lives.
Thanks to a faulty gene passed down from her dad who also suffered with the same, Claire has early on set Alzheimers. Her favorite colour is red & her husband buys her a red journal to start her record of fading memories.
This book is narrated by Claire, her daughter Caitlin, her mother Ruth & her husband Greg. You get such an insight into AZ & an insight to how it effects the family. There are sad parts, touching parts and very funny parts. My fav. is a twist which involves her husband which is so beautiful.
You must get this book!!

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

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.
