    Different I only gave it 4 because it was quite long and tedious in some parts although the descriptions were good. One item to point out although Bolton football club was formed before Everton and Liverpool Blackpool was formed after Everton in 1887 Everton were formed in 1878 although they were not called Everton

    Very life like I enjoyed reading this book. In many places it took me back to places I have been although it seemed like a second life. It was different to most of her books which was nice.

    The cover of this book (on my version it was different) was a real turn-off for me but I overcame my feelings because the book is about Alzheimer's. It tells the story of Laura Starling who survives a bullying mother, a monster of husband and abject poverty, eventually finding security with an older enigmatic man. But when Ben Starling develops Alzheimer's disturbing behaviours give Laura glimpses into a troubled past. Gritty characters, lots of tension - I really liked it.

    As the novel opens, Laura visits a place from her childhood. Then there's a lengthy flashback, which continues for most of the novel. Good characters and atmosphere, excellent insight into caring for the terminally ill. As the novel opens, Laura visits a place from her childhood.
