Rachel Hauck: The Memory House

By Kelly Bridgewater

Embracing the future means remembering the past . . . 

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.

My Thoughts:

Rachel Hauck's The Memory House is a unique time-slip novel featuring a couple from the 1960's and the present. Time-slip novels have become a popular genre novel lately. Hauck has written a number of them. The Memory House is a wonderful story that captured my attention from the first chapter and kept me spellbound as I flipped through the different characters story. Hauck made both heroines lose their memories in some form and had me glued to the pages to find out what happened that made them lose their memory. Of the two heroes, I enjoyed watching Don Callahan try to win Everleigh's affection. It was sweet and romantic. The writing was topnotch and Hauck proves why she is at the top of her game when it comes to writing time-slip novels. I believe fans of Hauck's other stories would enjoy this novel. If you enjoy Lauren K. Denton or Heidi Chivarallio, then this might be the story for you. 

I received a complimentary copy of The Memory House by Rachel Hauck from Thomas Nelson Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
