A Man in Winter is about Arthur, an older man whose wife was brutally murdered. Arthur is diagnosed with dementia and moves into a retirement home where his dead wife returns, asking for help.
The book is written from Arthur’s point of view, which worked well for his story. We only knew what he knew and, because of his dementia, what he forgot. I sometimes wondered if what he thought transpired did or if it was part of his dementia. Exploring this difficult topic through a murder mystery was intriguing and gave me (as the reader) a different viewpoint.
I felt for Arthur as he tried desperately to help his wife. He knew she was a ghost, but love knows no bounds. The ending was fitting and satisfying (which doesn’t always happen in these types of books).
Overall, I really enjoyed this book.
