I absolutely loved Memory House – #bookreviewer Salute

The sign that Annie Cross almost missed during her long and sad drive said “Memory House Bed & Breakfast”; as she walked up to the door she felt like she had been there before – and when she went inside with Ophelia Browne it felt like home. Ophelia was getting close to ninety years of age – her unique gift of finding memories was one she needed to pass on to another before she herself passed on; she was becoming desperate, but when Annie entered her home, Ophelia knew Annie was her answer.

Annie had only planned to stay for the weekend – her fight with Michael had caused her headlong dash along the highway – but the immediate friendship she felt with the elderly Ophelia, and the peace she found at Memory House meant she stayed for a week. As the two women shared dandelion tea Annie listened to the stories Ophelia had to tell. She learned about Edward, Ophelia’s beloved husband; and among others, the memories of an old bike and a ball. At first disbelieving, Annie was intrigued and fascinated by the tales.

But was there more to the pleasant and happy memories than Ophelia and Annie realized? What had happened to frighten Annie? All of a sudden Ophelia was fearful for Annie; fearful for the future – could she stop what she had started?

I absolutely loved Memory House by Bette Lee Crosby. This is a delightful story with wonderful characters, some of whom are taken from the author’s previous books – there is mystery and intrigue plus a sense of peace and wellbeing in this novel. I have yet to read a book by Crosby that I haven’t loved, and have no hesitation in recommending Memory House extremely highly.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
