When Beck Holiday lost her father in the North Tower on 9/11, she also lost her memories of him. Eighteen years later, she's a tough New York City cop burdened with a damaging secret, suspended for misconduct, and struggling to get her life in order. Meanwhile a mysterious letter arrives informing her she's inherited a house along Florida's northern coast, and what she discovers there will change her life forever. Matters of the heart only become more complicated when she runs into handsome Bruno Endicott, a driven sports agent who fondly recalls the connection they shared as teenagers. But Beck doesn't remember that, either. Decades earlier, widow Everleigh Applegate lives a steady, uneventful life with her widowed mother after a tornado ripped through Waco, Texas, and destroyed her new, young married life. When she runs into old high school friend Don Callahan, she begins to yearn for change. Yet no matter how much she longs to love again, she is hindered by a secret she can never share. Fifty years separate the women but through the power of love and miracle of faith, they each find healing in a beautiful Victorian known affectionately as The Memory House.

Wonderful book that draws you in with the story line rather quickly. It was hard to put the book down! I love this author and her books! I am always delighted to read them. Her books draw me closer to my Savior and encourage me that my past does not define me. I love how Christ shines brightly in her books!

I am a latecomer to the Rachel Hauck party, but I am definitely a fan. Last year I read "Love Letter" and gave it 5 stars. "The Memory House" is even more beautifully woven together and it shows in the higher combined rating so far. The book combines the storylines of Everleigh (beginning in 1953) and Beck (present day) and weaves them together into a narrative filled with grief and loss, tragedy, hope and love. This book will make you laugh and cry so have your tissues handy. God's providence is clear and Romans 8:28 comes to mind as I write this annotation. Great for fans of Susan Meissner.
