The Things We Keep
by Sally Hepworth
Can love conquer Alzheimer’s? Anna is only 38 years old, but she is living in an assisted living facility. She has early onset Alzheimer’s disease. The only other young person living at the Rosalind House facility is Luke with his own challenges. After Eve’s husband commits suicide, she must find her way and provide for her daughter, Clementine. Her culinary education lands her the job of cook for the residents of Rosalind House, where Clementine is often charming the residents. The connection between Anna and Luke doesn’t go unnoticed by Eve. As time goes by, more of Anna’s memories fade away. The families of Anna and Luke separate them. Eve weighs the risks of helping Anna and Luke, as she considers her own circumstances.
