Synopsis

FROM THE NUMBER 1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE MOTHER-IN-LAW AND THE FAMILY NEXT DOOR

'Fiction at its finest' - Liane Moriarty, Number One New York Times bestselling author

Two families, changed forever. Two women, facing futures they’d never imagined.

Anna Forster, in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease at only thirty-eight years old, is moved by her family into an assisted living facility. As her disease steals more and more of her memory, Anna fights to hold on to all that’s left: her feelings for another young resident, Luke.

Eve Bennett is hiding away from the world, working as a cook and cleaner at the facility, after months of her husband’s scandal being front-page news. The formerly pampered, wealthy wife – thrust into the role of single mother – now has only one goal: to protect her daughter.

When Eve meets Anna and Luke, she is moved by the bond the pair has forged. But when a tragic incident leads Anna's and Luke's families to separate them, Eve finds herself questioning what she is willing to risk to help them …
