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 forgotten memories. But now she’s nearing ninety, and Browne women seldom live beyond such an age.

Before time runs out Ophelia must find her successor…someone who can carry forth the gift 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.

As the two women sip dandelion tea and share stories, Annie begins to uncover new memories. Ugly ones. Ones buried deep enough to hide the scars. Excitement turns to fear when a thread of violence begins to unravel and Ophelia knows they have gone too far.

Edward would laugh and say it’s a surprise – #fridayfiction

“A swing for the back porch?” she’d say. “A hope chest? A picnic table?”

Each time Edward would laugh and say only that it was a surprise.

Back then the loft was simply an attic, a place with bare rafters that framed the house and held up the roof. The only way to get up there was a folding staircase that disappeared into the ceiling when it was not being used. A few sheets of plywood surrounded the staircase and formed a small square of flooring. But if you wanted to go from one side of the attic to the other, you’d have to make your way across the two-by-fours. One wrong step and you’d come crashing through the ceiling.

Ophelia smiles; she can still see the pride in Edward’s face that Christmas morning.

“We’d used all our money to buy the house, so that year we agreed not to buy Christmas presents.”
