"For fans of Jojo Moyes's Me Before You comes a beautifully written, heartwarming novel about mothers and daughters, husbands and wives. The Day We Met asks: Can you love someone you don't remember falling in love with? A gorgeous husband, two beautiful children, a job she loves--Claire's got it all. And then some. But lately, her mother hovers more than a helicopter, her husband Greg seems like a stranger, and her kids are like characters in a movie. Three-year-old Esther's growing up in the blink of an eye, and twenty-year-old Caitlin, with her jet-black hair and clothes to match, looks like she's about to join a punk band--and appears to be hiding something. Most concerning however is the fact that Claire is losing her memory, including that of the day she met Greg. When Claire meets a handsome stranger on a rainy day, she starts to wonder if Greg still belongs in her life. She knows she should love him, but she can't always remember why. When Greg gives her a blank book, Claire starts to fill its pages with unshared memories and keepsakes, jotting down beginnings and endings and everything in between. The book becomes the story of Claire--her passions, her sorrows, her joys, her adventures in a life that refuses to surrender to a fate worse than death: disappearing. Advance praise for The Day We Met "As with Me Before You, by Jojo Moyes, I couldn't put this book down."--Katie Fford Look for special features inside.

Very touching and human story about early onset Alzheimer's disease. Hard to read (because it's sad), but very worth it. Great discovery.
