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.

I’m an early riser – Memory House
The room is decorated in pinks and mauves; it has the look of a little girl’s room, a bouquet of prints blending into one another and the large double bed covered in a comforter that appears fluffy as a cloud.
“It’s lovely,” Annie exclaims. She steps inside and sets her overnight case down alongside a large mahogany dresser.
Ophelia makes no attempt to close the door, nor does she walk away. She watches Annie move around the room, first touching her hand to one thing and then another: the crocheted doily on the dresser, the ruffled curtain, a silk lampshade.
“This is my favorite room,” Ophelia says. “It overlooks a pond filled with ducks and geese. The squawking can be a bit annoying early in the morning, but they are a delight to watch. If you think the noise will bother you—”
“Not at all,” Annie replies. “I’m an early riser.”
