The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth

My Rating: 4.6

At 38 years old, Anna has early on-set Alzheimer's. She quits her job as a paramedic and goes to live at Rosalind House where single mother Eve is the chef. This goes back and forth in time and helps you to understand both Anna and Eve's journies - both of love and descent into Alzheimer's

It is hard to say that a book about Alzheimer's was 'enjoyable' but this was. It felt light and easy to read and captured so much - good & bad - about the disease. At the core of it, we are all people and that never changes. Definite recommend.


  1. Thanks for the recommendation. My Grandmother had Alzheimer's and it was horrible to watch her fight and succumb to this disease. I will check my library. Hope you are having a nice weekend.

    1. Oh Jeana, I am sorry about your grandmother. If you do read this, I would be interested to hear your thoughts. We had a good weekend and just got in from the airport so I need to get to unpacked and into bed as morning comes early. I hope you have a great week xoxo
