Who are we without our memory?

When Katherine Keene is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, her four grown children must grapple with how to care for her – and how to remake their relationships with each other.
And then there’s the secret that threatens their family’s very identity. Will the Keenes find healing and reconciliation – or implode from within?

 Brooke Adams Law is an award-winning author and founder of the Writing Brave movement. Brooke’s debut novel Catchlight won the Fairfield Book Prize. It was chosen for that honor by Phil Klay, a National Book Award winner. Catchlight was named a Best Indie Book of 2020 by Kirkus Reviews and was featured on Good Morning America’s blog. Brooke studied English at Vassar College and went on to receive her MFA in creative writing at Fairfield University.

As a book coach, Brooke helps people become writers and claim their author identity so that they can start, finish and publish brave, dazzling books. She spends her professional time coaching her book clients, writing her second novel, and running the publishing arm of her business, Writing Brave Press. In her personal time, you can find her reading in the backyard, chasing after her two small kids at the playground, advocating for gun violence prevention, and pressing her own green juice. You can visit Brooke’s website at www.wearewritingbrave.com
