Publisher's Summary

Faced with losing everything, all that matters is here and now....

Marigold has spent her life taking care of those around her, juggling family life with the running of the local shop, and being an all-round leader in her quiet yet welcoming community. When she finds herself forgetting things, everyone quickly puts it down to her age. But something about Marigold isn’t quite right, and it’s becoming harder for people to ignore. As Marigold’s condition worsens, for the first time in their lives her family must find ways to care for the woman who has always cared for them. Desperate to show their support, the local community comes together to celebrate Marigold and to show her that losing your memories doesn’t matter when there are people who will remember them for you....

Evocative, emotional and full of life, Here and Now is the most moving book you’ll read this year - from Sunday Times best-selling author Santa Montefiore.

Story about as so beautifully and tenderly written but characters voices could have been better. Nan and Dennis sounded similar.

Memorable story beautifully written and with such tenderness. Very well researched. Santa Montefiore’s best book .

Touching & believable- loved it!

Beautifully crafted story from start to finish. I absolutely loved the story! Such a spiritually uplifting story. It is so well written & believable. An open & fascinating insight into dementia & how it affects the person & their family. Heartbreaking, yet uplifting. This story reminds us all to live in the moment & to see beauty all around us in the here & now. Pure brilliance! Thank you!

Too much cackling.

Sad but lovely story. Afraid I didn't take to all the 'cackly' voices, okay if only one but everyone was a bit too much.
