The Night Guest

Fiona McFarlane

An absorbing read about an elderly woman's battle with dementia as well as with those supposedly taking care of her. What is real and what is imagined becomes a daily (and nightly) struggle.

The only thing I didn't like about this book was the cover of the UK  (Hbk) edition. This original Australian cover is much more attractive. Don't let the UK cover put you off, this is well worth reading in my view.

Contemporary fiction
