Now, a bit about the book…

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.

    My sister and I were teenagers. We were close as children, but teenage years had pulled us apart. One hot summer day we went for a walk, following a slow running brook. Holding our sandals, walking bare foot in the cool water, our walls feel. We shared secrets, laughs, and once again became best friends. We sat on a fallen tree, dangling our feet in the brook. It was a perfect day and when I call my sister to talk, I see us sitting on that tree.

    When I was about four, I can remember my Dad taking me to his mother’s house so I could spend the night! Oh how I loved those times! Our special time that stands out in my memories is sitting in the floor with her looking at old photographs. This became a tradition for the two of us. Sixty five years have passed but I can still remember the feeling of unconditional love as she patiently told me over the names of everyone in those pictures.



    Spending Sundays and holidays with multigenerations of our family. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and our own family.
    Grew up Italian and family means everything!



    I have so many great memories that I pondered on it for a long time before I decided to share this particular one out of them all.

    “The memory of Christmas Mornings and the the joy and pleasure of watching my sons as they opened their gifts with sparkling eyes and wide smiles”.

    My memories now are of my precious Mom. She was my stepmother and she and my Dad were married just short of 55 years. She took his two little daughters into her heart and always treated us as her own, even though she eventually had 4 of ‘her own’. She left this earth a little over 2 years ago at the age of 91 and I ache for her every single. I think of she and my Dad being together again (I lost him almost 14 years ago) and picturing that brings a smile to my face. I’ll be joining them pretty soon…I’m 75 and have terminal lung disease. But oh, how I miss my Mom and relive the memories of her every single day.
