Summary
A novel of love undaunted by obstacles, from the bestselling author of The Secrets of Midwives. Rosalind House might not be the first place you'd expect to find new love and renewal, but within the walls of this assisted living facility two women have their lives changed forever. Anna Forster, in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease at only thirty-eight years of age, knows that her twin, Jack, has chosen Rosalind House because another young resident, Luke, lives there. As if, Anna muses, a little companionship will soften the unfairness of her fate. Eve Bennett also comes to Rosalind house reluctantly. Once a pampered, wealthy wife, she is now cooking and cleaning to make ends meet. Both women are facing futures they didn't expect. With only unreliable memories to guide them, they have no choice but to lean on and trust something more powerful. Something closer to the heart
Summary
While a couple with early-stage Alzheimer's disease struggles to hold fast to their memories and growing relationship with one another, a chef at their assisted-living facility questions her willingness to help them in the wake of a tragic incident
