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 don’t know how “Memory House” is only my second book by Bette Lee Crosby!
I feel like I have been missing out on an extraordinary author!
This book took me on a powerful journey!
I felt so involved in these characters lives, Ophelia was so well-written and by far one of my favorite character’s written into a storyline.
Ophelia’s memories pull at your heart strings. She made me feel as if I were living through her memories. I felt so many emotions, there was joy, sadness and most of all love.
“A good memory is something you have to live with for awhile, let it settle in and become part of who you are”
This book captured my heart!
I look forward to reading the series and many more books by Bette Lee Crosby!
I highly recommend this book to everyone that loves a good heartwarming story!
