Then there was Brandt, Grady’s brother, whom she found herself attracted to. Two brothers who were helpful and had experienced a tragic loss. Her name is Freckles because she has dissociative amnesia and doesn’t remember her name. I found this to be intriguing and drew me in to want to know more. She’s 23 with a whole life ahead, but missing her past.
Grady’s loss and his tears were heartbreaking. The brothers were a mystery unto themselves. So kind, yet full of pain. How did they fit in to her story? A friend’s sister remembered meeting her at a party, but couldn’t remember her name. Teasers. Memories returning and teasing her with scenes that were incomplete. Until almost halfway through, she remembers it all. And what she had tried to escape had to be faced and mourned. And that she was dealing with PTSD and depression.
The author did a great job unfolding the story from Freckles’ POV as to how crushing it is for to regain her memory after her suicide attempt and faced what caused her to want to die. I never thought about those tragic events outside of the headlines and social media posts. This book asks who the survivors are, who did they lose, and how could they possibly find the will to survive such losses. Instead of being a downer, the book offers hope in the face of loss and true love never dies.
Note: I had originally read the original version of this, Forgotten Treasures, and I had been enthralled by it. Reading a modified version was interesting and no less absorbing. I received an ARC (advance reader copy) for review purposes. This is my honest review. I also 1-clicked a copy.
Not even a baby or all her good men could put Baylor back together again.
However, while the author shredded my emotions all over the place, she did an astounding job of making the wrong right...no scratch that…she allowed her characters to heal from the wrongness of life and move forward, no matter how hard that can be and that was what mended this readers’ heart. Yeah, it was an epic love story or stories, as you may learn. Memories of Us has got to be my favorite of contemporary of the year!! I encourage all readers to buy & love this book. They'll definitely get their monies worth.
When Baylor wakes up, she's confused. She has been in a comma and can't remember her life or even who she is.
The first part of the story is about how she works on trying to find out who she is and how she got to the point she is at in her life. And thanks to the help from a volunteer at the hospital, Grady, and his brother, Brandt, she has a place to stay and heal. But is there a bigger reason why they are helping her than just that they feel sorry for her. Why does she feel a connection to them?
The second part of the story will fill in all the blanks and explains what happened to lead up to the point where she is in her life.
What these characters have gone through, and ultimately survived, is beyond what many of us can ever imagine and the way Ms. Hart has written this story makes you feel like you are right there with them.
This book has certain parts were very hard to read. Anyone who has ever suffered a catastrophic loss and spiraled down because of it can tell you how relatable the main character is. How much you want to retreat and give up. But to see it in words, through the eyes of someone else, makes it a truly emotional read.
The first part of this book is about Bay finding out who she is after being in a coma and suffering from amnesia. There is a beautiful serenity to this part. The excitement of love and finding out what happened to this woman. Then part two happens. The part where your heart and soul gets ripped out. Where you find out the why. Her past isn't tragic, it's devastating. This book will haunt you.
A solid five stars for Bay's story but as much as I want to know what happens to Grady, I would have liked to see it in another separate book.
