We have 20 paperback copies of The Gingerbread House by Kate Beaufoy.
Away from the city, with no distractions, The Gingerbread House seems the perfect place to start work on a novel. That’s what former advertising copywriter Tess thinks when she goes to spend three weeks with her aged mother-in-law Eleanor.
But Eleanor is suffering from dementia, and caring for her proves tougher than Tess could have imagined. She feels increasingly isolated, her only comfort wine o’clock and weekend visits from her husband.
Meanwhile her teenage daughter Katia is helpless to intercede. In the end she can only watch as things break down and a tragedy even closer to home surfaces…
A compassionate, deeply moving and occasionally wickedly funny novel, The Gingerbread House is a tale of one family’s agonising struggle with dementia.
