Island. Some relationships remain strong because of the power of shared memories. What happens when one’s memory of certain events varies from the recollection of a loved one who was present? Rosecrans Baldwin sets his debut novel, You Lost Me There, in Maine on Mount Desert Island, and he uses the grief of a spouse on the death of his wife as a way to explore the power of memory in our relationships. It’s ironic that protagonist Victor Aaron is an expert on Alzheimer’s disease especially after he learns from his late wife Sara’s notes that her experience of their three-decade marriage varied a lot from his version of what their life was like. Readers who like to sample the work of new authors will find much good writing in this book.
