The Day we met

The Day We Met - Rowan Coleman

3.5 a little different take on a book about a woman with Alzheimer's and the struggle of her family. Of course the nature of the disease itself is sad this book is written in a way that leaves the reader feel a great deal of joy and understanding as well. The story is told partly by thereon with the illness as she realizes what, she is doing and what she will lose. The characters though are wonderful, little three year old, Esther provides a great deal of comic relief.

Ultimately this is about the strong bond between mothers and daughters. How even though someone's path may be different the family toes will be remembered by someone. Lastly, the enduring quality of love for those lucky enough to find it.
