Shadow Memory by Jennifer Brooks

A bittersweet tale that is more the story of a father/son relationship that of two lovers, even if Dean and Taylor are indeed lovers, partners and everything for each other.

Dean’s father has dementia, and while having lunch with him, Dean not only reconsiders his relationship with his father, but tries to imagine what will happen to his own relationship with Taylor if the same thing happening to his father will affect also him in the future. Dean’s father’s dementia moreover brings him back in the past, and Dean can, unwillingly, reliving some epic moments that when he was only a teenager he was not able to understand. At the end of the lunch, Dean is able to appreciate how lucky he is to have Taylor in his life and how important it’s to preserve that love, forever and ever.
