Blurb: Magic O’Clock:
Archie Royle is a kind, funny, gentle man.
He’s also my dad. My storyteller. My hero.
Except he doesn’t remember my face any more.
His world, these days, doesn’t include me or his family.
Life may have changed for him, but he hasn’t given up on life.
Not at all.
It’s just different.
Dad still tells his stories, albeit for a new audience.
He makes people smile and chuckle. As he always did.
He’s a fighter, a survivor and maybe sometimes too clever for his own good! He’ll surprise you. I can assure you of that.

Review: So I realise that these two novellas are linked and I managed to read them the wrong way round. Not that it mattered to the enjoyment of the stories and the underlying messages which are simply beautiful.
Dementia is a cruel disease that tears families apart. Don’t get me wrong for my family it was cancer but the saving grace for us was Nan always knew who we were right until the end. She did get confused from time to time.
Another sad reality to dementia is in some parts of their lives they have perfect clarity and know exactly where they are and what they’re saying and the next minute they don’t recognise their loved ones.
This is a beautiful and extremely sad tale of the reality of dementia and the day to day life of living in this reality with a loved one.
Thank you Rachel for these treats.
