Nick and Evie have been married for decades, and their marriage has survived many bumps in the road, but when Evie’s memory starts to fade, their future together is put in jeopardy—leading Nick to come up with a drastic solution if they are to remain together. The characters are lovingly depicted and the author does some skillful time-traveling to provide their backstories. The shifts are clearly delineated so the reader stays oriented as Nick’s and, especially, Evie’s lives are fleshed out. Lov ...more

This is a sensitively written book about a difficult subject. As another reviewer mentioned, the author makes extensive and skillful use of flashbacks. Even as she shows us Nick and Evie’s (rather precarious) present situation, she’s also telling us the stories of their lives in a measured, beautifully paced way. This sort of time-shifting can be effective if it’s done well and jarring if it’s not. It’s done extremely well here, and adds rich layers to the novel.

A heartfelt, sincere book that takes readers on a journey of heartache, love and hope. It's an emotional, empathetic, smart, and often hilarious story told by a master storyteller. Aird takes her time courting the reader with her thoughtful character development.
A sheer delight to read! The one problem I found with it... It comes to an end!

It's not often that I read about an elderly couple facing Alzheimer's disease, yet I really liked this book. It's not stuffy or sad, just...tender. The story shows the couple in their youth and in the present, and you get to know the way they used to be as well as the way they've become. Quite a journey.

A touching story about a couple's efforts to outrun the inevitable. Beautifully-written with an interesting narrative that intersperses and contrasts the various stages of life.

I spent most of the first part of my life moving around, from my childhood in Montreal, Canada and the US, to a year in Europe, where I hitchhiked, worked and lived from Paris to a tiny island in Spain, and to Israel, where I volunteered on a dusty kibbutz. I lived in Vancouver for a year and then took a train to the East coast. I did stints at three universities, worked in cafeterias and fast foo ...more
