The Memory Of You pulled me in from the first page. How do we forgive ourselves? Natalie lost part of herself when her sister died 13 years ago.(I can not even imagine losing my own sister.) When her grandpa has a heart attack, Natalie returns to the winery in California. She has avoided visiting the winery since that awful summer. Natalie’s dad would like to close the winery due to poor business and its starting to get run down. Tanner Collins, an employee would like to see it closed permentaly, when he meets Natalie everything changes
This book is about redemption, love, family loyalty and how to move past a tragedy. I could not put the book down and my heart was heavy for Natalie. I hope the author writes a follow up to this book. I highly recommend The Memory Of You and carving out time to read it.

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Dress comes a new captivating novel of secrets, romance, and two women bound together across time by a shared dream.
Why not read The Wedding Dress while waiting for the release of The Writing Desk.
A Love So True is beautifully written and reminds us that there is compassion regardless of what others do. This is the second book in the Teaville Moral Society series. I thoughly enjoyed reading the book and found it hard to put down once I started reading it.
Evelyn has a huge heart for women and children of the Red Light district. Her desire is to buld a home that these women can call their own. (My heart ached for those for felt they needed to prostitute themselves out.) No one wants to support this endeavor. If Evelyn can not convince local businesses to support and help financially, her dream may not happen.
David Kingsman is in Teaville to get his father’s business, A.K. Glass back on solid ground. His plan is to only stay in Teaville for a short time, that is until he meets Evelyn. He finds himself dropping in at the orphanage just to talk to Evelyn. Both David and Evelyn experience the same things we all do: second chances, joy and heartache. A common theme throughout the book was that Jesus forgives us regardless of what we think or the mistakes we make. Can they both trust God’s plan despite what may be stacked againist them?
I received an Advance Reader’s Copy of “A Love So True” for an honest review.
