Hello everyone, I hope everyone is off to a good start to the week. Today I’m going to be reviewing Rowan Coleman’s novel The Day We Met.
Okay I need to stop reading/watching thing about Alzheimer’s. This is the third piece of media that I’ve gone through this year about it, and it’s kinda bumming me out. Don’t get me wrong this novel was great & I loved it, but that’s one of my greatest fears to forget, or slowly forget everything.
The Day We Met by: Rowan Coleman: Claire Armstrong is a headstrong woman who does what she wants, but when she is diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s things slowly start to change. The novel takes on what Clair is going through, but also brings in the other people in her life, namely her mother, and husband Greg, and shows how it directly affects them. On top of this her daughter Caitlin is struggling with her own battles, fighting to stop history from repeating itself. The novel tackles so many issues that at times it feels overwhelming to read; but at others everything seems to fit just nicely together. As much as the plot is focused around a very heavy subject, there are some lighter and funnier moments thrown in, certain characters added to drop the tension. It’s a fast-paced read, that is captivating, and mesmerizing tale of not only hardships, but of love.
