In Memoriam: Pam of Babylon (Book 7) by Suzanne Jenkins

In Memoriam begins with the birth of a baby boy to Pam's former boyfriend, Dan and daughter, Lisa as the journey of Pam of Babylon continues in this seventh volume. Still reeling from the death of her beloved son Brent, Pam endures life at the beach with remarkable strength.
Sandra tries to balance several versions of her life while striving to be part of the Smith legacy. Lisa rises above circumstances that would destroy most, with determination. But don't be too impressed; history does have a way of repeating itself. 


About The Author

Suzanne Jenkins's books are all creations of a rich and sometimes devilish dream life.  Don’t worry—you won’t see yourself in any of my books, but if you do, it’s just a coincidence…
In a former life, I was a registered nurse who worked in the Operating Room for many years. Prior to nursing school, I was an OR technician. I did my training at Marygrove College, and the clinical experiences we had took place in the Detroit Medical Center. I remember going to a mandatory autopsy in the morgue at Detroit General. All I can say is wow!  I was so relieved; the only thing going on the day I was scheduled to observe was a brain dissection. After working in the OR for over thirty three years, I now can’t stand the sight of blood.
I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for forty-five years. We have two children and seven grandchildren, and divide our time between the west Michigan lakeshore, the Brandywine River Valley, and the mountains of north San Diego county.

My Review:

Have always wondered how Pam survives all that life has given her, and probably one of the worst was at the end of the last book. Loosing a child had to have been a give up moment.
We are back, and I love it, in Babylon with Pam, and I can almost smell the salt air here, looking out at the ocean, and seeing the sand bar. Pretty descriptive part of this book is about this, and it sure must be some sandbar. Feel one of Pam’s downfalls is her kind heart, she shoulders the pain for so many, and then the ones she loves and trust seem to betray her.
We have, or I felt a bit of an ending or finalizing of this series here, but then, I want more. There are additions to the family in this book, and find Pam turning for help to the most unusual people. There is also a bit of romance and I so felt Pam deserves all the happiness she can find, she has had so many people that I felt loved her, but on second look, no!
Be ready for more of Sandra, will she finally find some happiness? How about Lisa and now her Dan? The old ladies are a hoot, and would love to be a fly on the wall around them. Love how Pam embraces them, and has now brought them home.
I for one am ready for some more of this series, I have to know how this all turns out, and I so enjoyed this read!

I received this book from the author, and was not required to give a positive review.
