Memory is something that quite literally plays on our all minds. We have all been in the situation where we say something to which nobody belives us. In this book, Maud is constantly looking for Elizabeth, as well as her long lost sister. Her constant searching for both, gets muddled in her head and the result is an incredible story with a lovely ending. I can fully see why this book has won so many awards and has been so acclaimed. Maud’s daughter Helen, becomes frustrated with her Mum and constantly tries to help her by writing reminders on notes, which only leads to further confusion. As a reader you felt for Helen, but equally wanted to keep reading to ensure that Maud found Elizabeth.
