A beautifully illustrated, sensitively told story of one day in the life of a woman struggling with dementia, evoking powerful emotions of a life remembered and a present defined by memoriesAngela wakes up full of hope, as she is expecting a visitor.

This picture book provides a touching insight into the mind of a person suffering from dementia. It is a rare and poignant picture book, handling a sensitive subject with respect and dignity. Its insights and beauty are derived from perceptive, lyrical detail, and stunning illustrations.
