 "Kelly review for this fab book 
When time is running out, every moment is precious…
When Claire starts to write her Memory Book, she already knows that this scrapbook of mementoes will soon be all her daughters and husband have of her. But how can she hold onto the past when her future is slipping through her fingers…?This book was one Richard & Judy Autumn Book Club pick, The Memory Book is a critically acclaimed, beautiful novel of mothers and daughters, and what we will do for love.

I just loved this book it one of the first books i have read by rowan i had hear some much about it I gave it to  my mum to read after she read it she loved it too .

I got to say it was a very touching and thought provoking read i was hooked from the first few lines right to the last few words on the last page .

The subject matter was very clear and so well written it a very emotional read but i was laughing at some parts too .
My grandma had Alzheimer’s she use to make us laugh or she make you so mad with what she did or said then she would be fine it very hard to cope some time but you do .

I love that each family member told you their story how they saw things . My heart when out to them all.
Claire was in her early forties she got two kids her Alzheimer’s was genetically past on from her dad .she was so young you just think of old people with it i do .
Some days claire would just forget words or how things worked at times it was hard for her too. I felt her pain .
Claire met her now husband Greg when he was repairing her roof she forgot where she put his money but he understand and they got very close they start a relationship which was so nice to read about we hear all sides to the relationship they had .
I like that greg gave her a book to write in each family member wrote in this book it good that we hear all about the past and the life that they got now
The book all about family , illness and how it effect the whole family and how they cope with life .

Dementia can and is very heartbreaking for the family to deal with but this book is wrote in inspiriting and sensitive way but some parts will make you smile or laugh too which was nice
It got a few very good twist you get to see the story through the family eyes which was nice it just a beautiful read i read in two days you all will love it please read for your self
