Descent by Linda Duncan McLaughlin

If you love someone you stick by them, no matter what happens. Because that's the deal. Isn't it?

50-somethings Rob and Cathy are looking forward to reclaiming their own lives now that their daughter Nicola is grown-up and settled but looming over them is a threat that could rip their future apart. Descent explores what happens as they try to hold on to each other - and themselves in the face of early onset dementia.

Unflinching from the heartbreak they face, this perceptive drama celebrates the courage, the hope, the humanity and even the humour they bring to the fight.
