I had been looking forward to reading this book for so long and now that I have read it I ve been putting off posting my review as nothing I can say will do justice to this fabulous bookClaire and Greg are very much in love and have only been married for a few short years Together they have a 3 year old daughter Esther and Claire has a 20 year daughter Caitlin from a previous relationship All seems perfect except that it isn t any longer Claire has been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer s and the tragedy is that both Claire and her mother both know exactly what to expect as the same disease claimed Claire s father They both know that Claire s memory will be taken away from her piece by piece so that eventually she will not even recognise her own childrenClaire is an independent and feisty woman and tries to fight the disease with all she has She raised Caitlin single handedly and has a daughter to be proud of As the disease progresses she has to give up her much loved job as a teacher and Ruth her mother moves in with the family to help care for her There are times when Claire even forgets where she lives and for her own safety her home also becomes her prison It was heart breaking to see the disease taking hold so uickly not only was she unable to remember the names of everyday items or read a bedtime story to Esther but even her husband Greg becomes a stranger to herThe Memory Book of the title is a large red journal that Greg buys for Claire so that all the family can record their memories and keepsakes Claire is encouraged to record her thoughts and memories before they leave her completely and as she begins this process we learn about her past life and how she has become the person she is today It also gives greater insight into her relationships with her mother and GregThe narration is mainly shared by Claire and daughter Caitlin with the occasional chapter by Ruth and Greg Both Claire and Caitlin have their own secrets which they are keeping from each other and when these are exposed the family faces being torn apartI knew this book was going to be a tearjerker and there were times when I was sobbing whilst reading this My mother suffered from a form of dementia before she died and Claire s times of lucidity and confusion bought back painful memories for me However although poignant the book isn t all about sadness There are many moments of laughter and I loved Claire s feisty nature and sense of fun especially when she was trying to outwit her mother and escapeThis is not just a book about Alzheimer s it s also about the love between mothers and daughters and families and the bonds that can never be broken no matter how testing the circumstancesI m not normally a gusher but this book has a gorgeous cover containing a wonderful and heartrending story Rowan Coleman has written a truly stunning book
