REVIEW: The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth


Anna and Luke, perhaps star-crossed lovers, reside at Rosalind House as each has early onset Alzheimer’s disease.  Anna’s brother chose the location since the assisted living facility had another young person, Luke, with the same affliction.  The story gives insight into the possible thoughts and loves of an Alzheimer’s victim.  Readers also meet chef Eve Bennett and her daughter.  They are both trying to survive the betrayal of Eve’s husband through a Ponzi scheme and then his suicide.  Eve and her daughter need to mend and the slow pace of Rosalind House provides refuge for them, too.
