Avatar for Laura P. Laura P. said:
Incredible mystery told from the point of view of a woman in the throes of dementia. Former orthopedic surgeon Jennifer White’s neighbor and long-time friend has been murdered and she is a suspect. The narrative alternates between Dr. White’s moments of lucidity and episodes of complete disconnect where she may believe she is 18 years old again or that her dead mother is beside her. In an especially surreal scene she escapes her care facility and goes to a free clinic and begins to treat patients. We learn about her past in snips all the while trying to follow what’s going on in her present. Surprisingly it works very well. Engrossing novel that keeps you thinking, what if it were me?

Did retired surgeon Jennifer White have anything to do with the murder of her best friend? Not even Jennifer knows, because her memory is spotty due to dementia. As she tries to remember what happened, more is reveled about her troubled relationships with her friend and her family members. An intriguing look inside the mind of a woman who is struggling to keep her memory.
