    I've just finished reading 'Grace and Mary' by Melvin Bragg. It's an autobiographical novel based around him visiting his mother, Mary, who had dementia and who was in a care home towards the end of her life. The 'Grace' in the title refers to Mary's mother.....I won't say more as it would spoil the plot.

    Anyway I found it an easy, honest and interesting read. Wonder if anyone else here has read it?

    I haven't but I like Melvyn Bragg Lindy and even though I avoid `dementia` stories because they are too close to home, I`ll see if it`s available on Kindle.

    Yes its on Kindle and looks good . I've bought it. :)

    I hope you enjoy it Sylvia :) It was recommended on the FutureLearn course I just did - it’s kind of based around dementia but there are other aspects I found equally interesting x
