When Jennifer’s best friend Amanda is found dead with four of her fingers removed by someone who clearly understands surgery, Jennifer, an orthopedic surgeon specializing in hands, is an obvious suspect. But even Jennifer doesn’t know if she committed the crime because, at age 64, her memories are being consumed by Alzheimer’s. Part murder mystery, part portrayal of the pleasures and pitfalls of lifelong relationships between women, and part window into the condition Jennifer describes as “the death of the mind”, Turn of Mind is a fascinating portrait of the importance of memory in our lives.
