Publisher's Summary

Memories are fragile when you are 70 years old. I can’t afford to lose any more of them, not when remembering the past might help with the here and now.

Nadia needs help. Help getting out of her hospital bed. Help taking her pills. One thing she doesn’t need help with is remembering her sister. But she does need help finding her. Alone and abandoned in a London hospital, 70-year-old Nadia is facing the rest of her life spent in a care home unless she can contact her sister Simone...who’s been missing for 50 years. Despite being told she’s ‘confused’ and not quite understanding how wi-fi works, Nadia is determined to find Simone. So with only cryptic postcards and her own jumbled memories of growing up in Egypt to go on, Nadia must race against her fading faculties and track down her sister before she herself is forgotten. 

Set against the lush and glamorous backdrop of 20th century Alexandria, Carol Cooper’s third novel is equal parts contemporary mystery and historical fiction: a coming of age story about family, identity and homeland.

Wonderful

A wonderful book
I particularly liked the attention to detail.
I felt as if I was right there with Nadia.
I was gripped on each chapter I literally couldn’t stop listening.
