From the Author
Q: What was your inspiration for Remembrance?
A: Remembrance was inspired by Taylor Swift's "Love Story" music video. In the video, Taylor sees a guy while walking through campus, and the moment their eyes connect, the scene flashes to the two of them dancing at a beautiful ball dressed in clothes that appear to be from around the year 1815. After watching the video, the characters and story in Remembrance started to piece together in my mind. I started to write it down, and ended up with a finished novel!
Q: How many books will there be in the series?
A: Remembrance is the first part of the Transcend Time Saga, which is told in three parts. The second part is a short story called Vengeance, and the third part is the novel that concludes the Saga, Timeless.
Q: Where can we find you online?
A: I love communicating with fans online! On my website, michellemadow.com, there are links to my Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and all my other social media sites. Be sure to add me on there, because I love meeting and talking to people who enjoyed my books!

Lizzie drove me insane! She was so whiny, boring, and thought that everyone else was right, and she was always right. Until Drew came, and everything was right. Love at first sight! Crazy! I get that you are reincarnated so you "remember" things, but you would think you would be good at French and the piano before this guy came along. And Drew was so creepy Edward. Chelsea, Lizzie's best friend, annoyed me the most. Lizzie is trying to tell her that she is not happy with Jeremy, and you continue to tell her to stay with him. Jeremy laughs her and tells her what to do all the time and they argue all the time, and you tell her you should stay together? Chelsea, you need some lessons on being a best friend.
The idea of this book was really good, and I was really fighting to finish this book. The grammar was awful, and the characters annoyed me like crazy. It was too much like Twilight for me. I really don't understand how this had high ratings on goodreads.
It began very well and the "flash" of the past was interesting. I wasn't even halfway when I started hating EVERYONE in the book. The boyfriend was made out to be a passive-agressive jerk. Chelsea, the so-called best friend, couldn't take Lizzie and Drew guessing each other's favorite ice cream without being annoyed. And Drew? Wow. So totally horrible guy! He always treated her crappy and it's all forgiven in a blink.
One of the lines in the book goes something like, "Oh Drew. That's why I love you. You always think of others." This because he chose to move from NY to a small town for his mom. It's pretty much the ONLY time he ever did something for an other.
So technically neither cheated on the their significant other because they waited what must have been MINUTES to get together after officially breaking up. And then they had the gall to gloss it over by saying the other two "will get over it." Over and over. Oh and get this! Lizzie was shocked and felt betrayed when Chelsea tried to get Drew back even though she knew Lizzie had feelings for him. Really???? Really?????
This was such a waste of my time. The only reason I finished it was because I had a goal to read a certain number of books by the end of the summer and if I didn't finish this, I wouldn't have made it. I can't believe it got so many 4 and 5 stars.
Remembrance swept me up and carried me away on a romantic, exhilarating ride. The ride started with the cover. This cover is just simply beautiful and full of promises. I've seen bloggers get aggravated because people like me talk about covers. And yes, I know "You can't judge a book by it's cover". I am a firm believer that for people, no it's not right. But for books? Oh yes, you can judge a book by it's cover. And the cover for Remembrance is spectacular. In fact, I noticed it a few months before the author asked me to review the book.
Once I began reading Remembrance, the joyful ride continued. Michelle Madow's writing has such an ease about it. I don't know if it's her natural writing style or if it was polished until it shined, but every word, every gesture, every nuance was perfectly placed. That perfection made Remembrance such an easy, enjoyable read.
I learned before reading Remembrance that one of the inspirations was Pride and Prejudice. I love that book, it's without a doubt my favorite from Jane Austen. I enjoyed being able to pick up on the influence while reading and loved the references to P & P from main character, Liz.
Speaking of Liz, I have to say that I loved the characters in Remembrance. Except the ones I didn't, but I'm pretty sure that was the author's intentions. Liz is what you find in a lot of YA heroines. She's bright, brave and reliable. Liz's love interest Drew was sexy, charming (sometimes) and romantic.Read more ›
