*Sniffle, honk* Excuse us while we wipe away the ugly-cry mess on our faces after reading THE THINGS WE KEEP by Sally Hepworth.
We love—and I mean, LOVE—this book. Even Baby Daniel loves this book (mostly how it tastes). We’ll let EarlyWord’s Robin Beerbower tell you why:
“If you…have leftover tissues, put them to good use by reading Sally Hepworth’s THE THINGS WE KEEP. Marika Zemke from Commerce Township Public Library stayed up all night to finish this moving story of a 38-year-old woman with early onset Alzheimer’s who falls in love with another care home resident. Marika said ‘What follows is a story about all types of love…romantic love, mother/daughter love, compassionate love and more.’ I’ll add reading this gave me the same feeling as when I first read Nicholas Sparks’ THE NOTEBOOK.”
