Memories by Deanna Lynn Sletten
Print and e-book, 200 pages
Published February 24th 2012 by Deanna Lynn Sletten

Michael DeCara came home from the Vietnam War a wounded man, both physically and emotionally. He tried putting his life back together, but found civilian life difficult after all he’d experienced in Nam. Raising his young daughter, Vanessa, by himself after his wife left, he found it difficult to commit to one job or one woman for any length of time. Then he met a young woman who made him feel good about himself again and who fell in love with Vanessa as well. But one day his life changed drastically and he left without a word to the girl, believing he was doing what was best for her. Now, years later, she has walked back into his life and he believes they may have a second chance at love–except she hates him and he doesn’t understand why.

Danielle Westerly fell in love when she was only eighteen and her heart was broken when he left her without a word. Her heartache was increased when she made a fateful decision that would alter her future, and she blamed him for her loss. Years later, she is single and has built up a successful career when she accidently runs into the man who was responsible for her past pain. Yet, their chemistry is undeniable. Can Dani give up her anger and let go of the pain of the past and fall in love again with the man she has hated all these years?

Dani and Michael share a journey of heartache, loss and painful memories that threaten to keep them apart. Can they get past these and finally find love again?

  1. How was it moving from California to Minnesota as a teenager?

    1. Truthfully - it was a bit shocking! I went from a high school of 5,000 to one with about 100 students. I had been sun tanning on the beach in November before we moved and landed in a place with 4 feet of snow! It was quite the culture shock, but I survived and still live here. :)

  2. Susan - Thanks so much for the giveaway for Memories! It was such a nice surprise!

  3. Looking forward to reading "Maggie's Turn." Thanks.

  4. I read Maggie's Turn and loved it. I can't wait to read Memories.


Thanks SO much for leaving me a comment! Every single one means a whole lot to me!
