Gone but Still Here

Gone but Still Here

Jennifer Dance2022

Mary explores long-buried memories of her interracial love story as her short-term memories fade. Struggling to cope with Alzheimer’s disease, Mary moves into her daughter’s home, along with her cat. Mary’s daughter is full of good intentions but soon finds herself caught between her cognitively impaired mother and her belligerent teenage son. Sage, the family’s golden retriever, offers them all comfort and unconditional love, but she has her own problems now having to deal with the cat. As dementia progresses, Mary’s recent memories vanish, replaced with those from her past, especially of her young husband who died forty years earlier. Wanting to keep Keith’s memory alive for her children, Mary attempts to write her memoir. Spanning Trinidad, England, and Canada, her tangled tales reveal the trauma of an interracial love story set in an era of intolerance and hatred, and of a love that refuses to die. But with her reading, writing and comprehension skills slipping away, it’s a race against time.
