About the book:
Anne and Joe have at long last found the sweet spot in their relationship – they have overcome conflict and difficulties and the challenges of growing towards old age together, and now appreciate each other’s company, a great sex life, and are looking forward to what retirement brings. But inexplicably, Joe – a gifted architect – finds himself losing things, making miscalculations and blanking out parts of his day. As Joe’s condition worsens, he and Anne face the agonising question: what is the point of no return?
