Summary

Annie Doyle's husband, Vince, is in a care home with final-stage dementia. And after decades of deeply unhappy marriage, Annie can barely bring herself to care. But as the family gathers to see out Vince's final days, he utters a single word that will change the entire family forever: 'Martha'.

Who is Martha? And why is Annie so quick to dismiss the mention of her name? Annie's past is finally about to collide with her present, and there's no one - family member, friend, even her loyal dog, Finn - who won't be shaken to the core by her long-held secrets.

so slow! hours before it gets anywhere..

finishing was definitely a struggle. maybe it's worth it but it's not a great story in the end.

struggled to get started. not for me, thanks

I don't like this book. it may be very interesting, but it's not for me. I'd like to send it back. the theme may be just right for some other old person who loves dogs.
