    Jenny Twist has created a cast of unforgettable and enjoyable characters in her book, All in the Mind. Tillie, a World War II nurse, awakes to find herself in a strange place with no knowledge of how she came to be there. The explanation and her path with her dear husband is the backbone of the story.
    You want everything to turn out wonderfully for all the people you meet in this book. They are an engaging bunch who are involved in a unique and exciting experiment.
    If you know anyone who has suffered from dementia, this book will be especially dear to you.

    Simply lovely -- uplifting, inspiring, and original

    The sweetness of this romance...the hope spanning decades, touching and changing lives not just in England, but across oceans...it's simply a beautiful story. Reminiscent of The Notebook, it has the same poignancy of a couple rediscovering their love, joy, and passion for each other after the ravages of Alzheimer's has all but stolen it away, but with a much different resolution.

    I enjoyed the way that Jenny Twist describes the little things that we might otherwise take for granted -- how we navigate, how we talk at present and spoke in the past, linguistics in different countries, the finer points of the post-war kitchen... I was drawn in by the love story of Tilly and Johnny, but also compelled to keep reading to find out more about their friend and researcher, Kim. (I think perhaps Kim was my favourite character.)

    I devoured this book over the course of three lunch hours and completed it while my daughter was in her dance class. I didn't want to leave this world for a moment. Jenny Twist has once again entranced me with her wonderful imagination, articulate command of language, beautifully envisioned characters, and original plot. Please read this book and ask a friend to read it, too. In these dark days of November, or in the early days of spring, or in the light of summer, it's a thoroughly satisfying romance.
