Synopsis

***



'An honest and thoughtful memoir. Moving but, ultimately, full of hope. Beautiful.' KATE MOSSE



'Superb. Love & Care is a book about the unbreakable bonds of family, the cruelty of passing time and a love that never dies.' TONY PARSONS



'A beautiful, intimate story of love and understanding - candid and funny. This is a lyrical memoir of hope and forgiveness.' RAYNOR WINN, author of The Salt Path





'He's in hospital again . . . and he's not eating. Perhaps you should think about coming back to the UK,' Brenda said. 'I don't think your dad will be going home again.'



Shaun's mother is in a care home with Parkinson's Dementia and now his father is dying. He should go back.



And yet this was supposed to be his time. Shaun has relocated to a new country to make a fresh start. His two daughters are grown-up. He has moved on from the divorce. He is single and he is free and still hoping to find love again.



Will this mean giving up on his own life?





'A heart-warming, heart-wrenching, and beautifully humane account of loving and caring.' NICCI GERRARD, novelist and author of What Dementia Teaches Us About Love



'An insightful tale of care . . . this book needed to be written.' JO GOOD, BBC Radio London



'A vital subject, a really strong voice and, hurrah, humour makes this absorbing reading.' CAROLINE RAPHAEL, Radio 4's Book at Bedtime



'An eye-opening - and at times jaw dropping - account that will make you weep with its tenderness and compassion . . . A highly readable tale of redemption and a celebration of love's many hues.' PAUL BLEZARD, Love Reading
