Please join us for our April Humboldt Reads! Thursday, April 19th, 5:30 pm at Pasquales in Humboldt, IA. Attendees pay for their meal choice, and no pre-registration or monthly commitment is required.
This month’s selection is The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth.
“Anna Forster is only thirty-eight years old, but her mind is slowly slipping away from her. Armed only with her keen wit and sharp-eyed determination, she knows that her family is doing what they believe to be best when they take her to Rosalind House, an assisted-living facility. But Anna has a secret: she does not plan on staying. She also knows there’s just one other resident who is her age: Luke. What she does not expect is the love that blossoms between her and Luke even as she resists her new life. As her disease steals more and more of her memory, Anna fights to hold on to what she knows, including her relationship with Luke.
Eve Bennett, suddenly thrust into the role of single mother to her bright and vivacious seven-year-old daughter, finds herself putting her culinary training to use at Rosalind House. When she meets Anna and Luke, she is moved by the bond the pair has forged. But when a tragic incident leads Anna’s Luke’s families to separate them, Eve begins to question what she is willing to risk to help them. Eve has her own secrets, and her own desperate circumstances that raise the stakes even higher.
With huge heart, humor, and a compassionate understanding of human nature. Sally Hepworth delivers a page-turning novel about the power of love to grow and endure even when faced with the most devastating obstacles. You won’t forget this book.”
