I slipped effortlessly into the world of – Memory House

Dale on Goodreads says:

After waiting a long time to get my hands on a copy, I think I had a fair idea what would happen when I picked up this book. And it did. I slipped effortlessly into the world of Memory House Bed and Breakfast and its almost ninety year old owner Ophelia Browne. To the bed and breakfast comes the broken-hearted Annie Cross who comes to stay a couple of nights and finds more than she bargained for. This charming book about memories that outlive their owners was a delight to read. It is a book about inter-generational friendship, lasting love and also that which is a pale imitation of love. Yes, it is a feel good story but not all is sweetness and light, as Annie discovers when some darker memories and experiences appear.

This is a the first Bette Lee Crosby book I have read and I knew from the moment I started reading it, there would be no putting this book aside and no stopping till I finished it. My problem when I closed the last page is now I want to read all the books in this series and probably a number of this author’s others too. I’m about to start compiling a list for family of suggested books from Mother’s Day. I don’t want to say to much about this book. It’s better to read it and let the experience wash over you. Recommended reading especially for any who know or have known lasting love and the way friendships span generations.

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.
