This is where keeping a record on Goodreads comes in handy, otherwise I would have no idea what books I read last year (I have slept since then).

This novel is a creative mix of a few genres and I was quite surprised that I enjoyed it. The book itself has received mixed reviews. Even though I enjoyed it, I also have mixed feelings about it.
Maude is more than just a little forgetful and is now living more in the past than the present. Her days are jumbled and she is confused about the disappearance of her friend Elizabeth. While Maude is trying to find her friend she is inadvertently solving a mystery from the past.
I admired the authors attempt at writing from the viewpoint of someone with dementia. The novel does not shy away from the challenges faced by both Maude and also her daughter. I have to admit to being a little bit disappointed with the mystery element of the novel. On the whole though the book was very well written and a well written book is always a delight.
