"My Name is Jennifer White. I am 64 years old. I have dementia."
It's hard to believe TURN OF MIND is Alice LaPlante's first novel. Disguised as a murder mystery, the real reason to read this book is the realistic portrayal of the deterioration of a woman's mind through Alzheimer's Disease. This story is written in 1st person through a series of journal entries by Jennifer White, a former orthopedic surgeon now descending into late-stage dementia who is also a person of interest in the investigation into her best friend's murder. It is a moving study of someone contending with memory loss. We can feel her frustration. Her confusion. Her anger. Eloquently written, highly recommended.

A terrific book, that provides the opportunity to see through the eyes and mind of a very intelligent women with Alzheimer Disease. Yet it is also a mystery and a look at relationships that asks some intriguing questions.

"Staff Pick" by ,

Dr. Jennifer White is a retired hand surgeon, who, unfortunately, is moving toward late-stage dementia. When her best friend is murdered and found with fingers surgically removed from one hand, Dr. White is the prime suspect. Yet, how to build a case, much less convict, on the bewildering ramblings of an Alzheimer's patient? Told from Dr. White's perspective, Turn of Mind is a moody, gauzy, wispy story; the haze of lost memory is almost palpable. As Dr. White's dementia deepens and her thoughts becomes more jagged and disconnected, the story continues to build toward an explosive ending. Completely gripping, Alice LaPlante's great literary mystery will keep you guessing until the end.
