Notes:
Marigold has spent her life taking care of those around her, juggling family life with the running of the local shop, and being an all-round leader in her quiet yet welcoming community. When she finds herself forgetting things, everyone quickly puts it down to her age. But something about Marigold isn't quite right, and it's becoming harder for people to ignore. As Marigold's condition worsens, for the first time in their lives her family must find ways to care for the woman who has always cared for them. Desperate to show their support, the local community come together to celebrate Marigold, and to show her that losing your memories doesn't matter, when there are people who will remember them for you.

This is not the genre of book normally read but something about it caught my eye.  I was hooked from the first few pages and spent three days reading at every opportunity I had.  The topic is very sad but the way the author describes the characters in the book is fantastic, I felt I knew them.  Many different emotions from the different people but all with the strong sense of supporting each other.  Even though the end was predictable as far as the main character is concerned it was done very well and there were surprised with regard to other family members.  Dementia is cruel, I know that from a family member however I didn't feel sad so much as glad to read about it from someone else's prospective.  Really recommend this book.
