Memory House by Bette Lee Crosby and a Giveaway!


The Memory House

Memory House by Bette Lee Crosby
Kindle Edition, 178 pages
Expected publication: April 14th 2015 by Bent Pine Publishing


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. 

You can pre-order Memory House for only $.99!!

My thoughts about Memory House ~~ 

I have loved every single one of Bette's books and Memory House took me back to some of the settings in those wonderful stories and let me reconnect with the great characters that I have come to love. 

What an interesting idea, that memories are stored, but sometimes forgotten, and that there is a memory keeper who finds and cares for those memories. 
'Good memories attach themselves to an inanimate object and stay there until the right person comes along. When they find a soul that welcomes them, those memories live again.'
Ophelia is getting up there in years and is searching for someone to take over the task for her. 
'If death comes before she finds a replacement, the memories might be lost forever.'
Along comes Annie Cross and she just might be the person for the job. 
'... she was hoping to forget; little did she know this trip would be the start of remembering.'  
Bette writes very beautiful and magical stories that are woven together to create a wonderful world that I never want to leave. I know when I sit down to read one of her books that I am going to be transported to a place filled with gentle, caring people; people and places that I haved loved before, as well and meeting new people and discovering new places.
