The Memory House by Rachel Hauck
Embracing the future means remembering the past . . .
When Beck Holiday lost her father in the North Tower on 9/11, she also lost her memories of him. Eighteen years later, she’s a tough New York City cop burdened with a damaging secret, suspended for misconduct, and struggling to get her life in order. Meanwhile a mysterious letter arrives informing her she’s inherited a house along Florida’s northern coast, and what she discovers there will change her life forever. Matters of the heart only become more complicated when she runs into handsome Bruno Endicott, a driven sports agent who fondly recalls the connection they shared as teenagers. But Beck doesn’t remember that, either.
Decades earlier, widow Everleigh Applegate lives a steady, uneventful life with her widowed mother after a tornado ripped through Waco, Texas, and destroyed her new, young married life. When she runs into old high school friend Don Callahan, she begins to yearn for change. Yet no matter how much she longs to love again, she is hindered by a secret she can never share.
Fifty years separate the women but through the power of love and miracle of faith, they each find healing in a beautiful Victorian known affectionately as The Memory House.
About The Author
I loved this book and it quickly turned into a quick page turner, and a sense of loss when the last page was turned, and how appropriate is the title!
The author draws us in with two strong main characters, both woman, and both willing to make the ultimate sacrifice. Disasters are what make them similar, and great men who loved them to the end.
We span decades and yet things are the same but different, and find a home in a quiet town in Florida to be catalyst to healing.
Warning once you start this one, you will not want to put it down.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson, and was not required to give a positive review.
