IS IT POSSIBLE FOR A MEMORY TO OUTLIVE ITS OWNER?
Ophelia Browne knows the answer is yes. She knows because she’s been granted the unique gift of finding and caring for those forgotten memories. But now she’s nearing ninety, and Browne women seldom live beyond ninety.
Before time runs out Ophelia must find a successor. Someone who can take hold of the gifts and keep the memories from fading.
When broken-hearted Annie Cross shows up on the doorstep of The Memory House Bed and Breakfast, Ophelia knows she is the one. The two women forge a bond of friendship as they sip magical dandelion tea and share stories. When Annie starts to sense the memories Ophelia is delighted, but then a thread of violence begins to unravel and Ophelia fears things have gone too far.
I picked up “Memory House” yesterday and could not put it down until I had finished.
Who needs sleep when you are reading Bette Lee Crosby?
I loved the story of Annie’s life and how all of the characters were developed. The moment when I heard names that I recognized was a turning point for me. I was surprised to hear that characters from other Bette Lee Crosby novels were part this story. I thoroughly enjoyed that!! It was a Wow moment for me!!
Ophelia was someone that I wished that I could meet in person. What a sweet woman.
I had times where I was a little sad but then the happy moments that balanced them out!
I am anxious to read the next book in this Series.
I would absolutely recommend that you read this book, as well as her other books.
