Summary
Ninety-year-old Patricia Cowan has two sets of memories, not to mention two different families who come to visit her in the nursing home (where her room sometimes has navy blue curtains, sometimes pale green blinds). Although her caregivers believe that she suffers from dementia, Patricia suspects that her life decisions may, in fact, have changed history and created two distinct, branching timelines. In one reality, "Trish" becomes an unhappily married mother of four with an abiding interest in local politics; in the other, "Pat" becomes a writer, finding love and happiness with a woman named Bee. Which world, if any, is "real" -- and does it even matter? -- Description by Gillian Speace
