内容紹介

A MAGICAL LOVE STORY... Second edition, now with added content.
Memory House is a place where friendship turns to love, love lasts forever, and memories outlive their owner. Ophelia Browne knows this because she's been granted the unique gift of finding and caring for those forgotten memories. But now she's nearing ninety, and needs to find a successor - soon.

When broken-hearted Annie Cross shows up on the doorstep of The Memory House Bed and Breakfast, Ophelia knows she is the one. The two women forge a bond of friendship as they sip magical dandelion tea and share stories. When Annie starts to uncover new memories Ophelia is delighted, but then a thread of violence begins to unravel and she fears things have gone too far.
Winner of the 2015 FAPA President's Book Award Silver Medal

著者について

USA Today Bestselling Author and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby brings the wit and wisdom of her Southern Mama to works of fiction-the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." Crosby's work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. Since then, she has gone on to win another seventeen literary awards, including the Royal Palm Literary Award, The Reviewer's Choice Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal and the Reader's Favorite International Book Award Gold Medal. Her published novels to date are: Cracks in the Sidewalk (2009), Spare Change (2011), The Twelfth Child (2012), Cupid's Christmas (2012), What Matters Most (2013), Jubilee's Journey (2013), Previously Loved Treasures (2014), Blueberry Hill, A Sister's Story (2014) Passing through Perfect (2015) and Memory House (2015). She also authored "Life in the Land of IS" a memoir of Lani Deauville, a woman the Guinness Book of Records lists as the world's longest living quadriplegic.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Four stars: A magical realism story that will enchant you. 2015/4/15
投稿者 Heidi - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版
Ophelia Brown is almost ninety years old. She has lived in the Memory House by herself, protecting the objects that hold special memories. Ophelia has no children or family, so she is anxious to find someone who will carry on her legacy. Finally by chance, a young lady, Annie, shows up on her doorstep looking to rent a room for night. Ophelia dares to hope that Annie might be the one. Over some magical dandelion tea, the two talk, and Ophelia knows that Annie is indeed the one. Can Ophelia convince Annie that there is magic in memories?
What I Liked:
*I am a sucker for magical realism stories as I like to believe that there is the possibility of magic in the real world. Ms. Crosby delivers a sweet and simple story with two unforgettable women who forge a lovely friendship, along with a pinch of magic. If you are looking for a light, quick, cozy read, this is a sure bet.
*I adored Ophelia Brown. At almost ninety years old, she knows she is nearing the end of her life. Yet, she is as active and alive as ever. Ophelia has a special gift for blending herbs in a way that helps others, almost a bit like magic. Ophelia is wise, and a bit magical. Along with her gift for herbs, she has a talent for being able to glean memories off from certain objects. Every once in awhile, something she handles will impart memories of the past from its previous owner to Ophelia. Ophelia believes that memories have their own life and that it is up to her to share her gift. Ophelia is one of those characters who will immediately draw you in.
*Annie is a young woman, struggling with the every day burdens of life. A job that has gone sour and a failed romance, lead her on a small getaway. Annie lands on Ophelia's doorstep, and soon, the women form a fast friendship. I liked that Annie was quickly able to open her heart to Ophelia and her mind to the possibility of magic. I enjoyed watching her journey and seeing her transform. Together, Annie and Ophelia are magical.
*The story take us through Annie's troubled romance as well as Ophelia's long lost love. I liked Ophelia's romance, it is one that is sweet and sad. Annie after a struggle finally learns to let go, and in the end, a lovely new romance awaits her as well. I loved both romances.
*I have only read two books by Ms. Crosby prior to this one, and I liked that there were traces of the two stories I knew in this book. Fans of Ms. Crosby will be delighted to know that all the articles that possess memories in the house are from her other novels, so if you have read all her books, you will easily be able to pick out what item goes to which story, and you will understand the history of each item. I thought this was a clever and unique concept.
And The Not So Much:
*This was a quick, light read, but I didn't like that it ended a bit abruptly. It stops just at the point where things are moving in a happy, positive direction for Annie. I was expecting a bit more resolution for both Annie and Ophelia. It almost felt like a prequel, and I am hopeful that there will be more story to come because there is certainly more story to tell.
*This is a personal preference, but for me, I feel the book would have been more impactful if the author had stuck strictly to a first person narrative throughout. The majority of the story is told via third person, but then there are these small chapters that are done in first person that relay Annie or Ophelia's thought. I felt much more connected to the chapters done in first person vs. the third person.

Memory House is a simple, sweet story perfect for those who love a small dose of magic. This is the perfect cozy read for when you need a quick pick me up or for when you need a easy way to wile away an afternoon or a stormy day. This is a book with memorable characters, a touching romance and a nice story. Give it a try.

Favorite Quotations:
" A good memory is something you ave to live with for a while, let it settle in and become part of who you are. Then when it's feeling at home and welcome, you can move on to the next one."
"The thing is," Ophelia adds, "there's a big difference in missing someone because they filled a hole in your life and missing someone because they were your whole life."

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and I was not compensated for this review.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Memory House 2017/4/3
投稿者 P. Wilfort - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
Annie Cross is running from a broken love affair and the only thing she wants is to forget; but once she meets Ophelia Browne she just might discover there are far greater joys in remembering.Ophelia remembers everything. She remembers things from her own life and from the lives of those who came before her. She has only to touch her hand to an object and she can feel the special memories clinging to it.But now she is nearing ninety and needs to find a caretaker for these memories. If death comes before she finds someone, the memories will be lost forever. Ophelia prays this won't happen.
When Annies hows up on the doorstep of the Memory House Bed and Breakfast Ophelia knows she is the one. Seldom has she come across such deep violet eyes,and never with the flecks of green that once could be seen in her own reflection.
The two women forge a friendship and forgotten memories begin to unfold, but before long a thread of violence starts to unravel and Ophelia fears things may have gone too far.

I absolutely enjoyed this story, the characters were good! I love how it all turn out, I'm looking forward to the next one in this series. This is a new Author for me,

5つ星のうち 5.0 A great journey into the lives of two women 2017/5/9
投稿者 Dick - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
A great journey into the lives of two women without really being "women's fiction." The author develops wonderful characters and had great pace in the book. I read Spare Change prior to reading this book, a while it was not necessary to do so, it certainly helped connect the dots. High would highly recommend this book and look forward to reading another of Bette Lee's stories.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Enjoyable Quick Read 2015/12/5
投稿者 Michael Gallagher - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
This is an entertaining story that takes a couple of hours to read and reminds me a little bit of Nicholas Sparks’ style of writing. The author does a good job of having you relate to her main character, and paints a realistic type of scenario for dealing with past lives and memories. I could actually see this one being a book or the foundation of a television series along the lines of Ghost Whisperer (except there are memories and not ghosts). While enjoyable, the ending was rather abrupt and served as a tie-in to the author’s previous novels: if you want to learn more, you will need to purchase the other titles.

I picked this up for 99 cents in the Amazon Kindle store during a Kindle promotion vs. its normal price of $3.99. If you’ve read the other books in the series, you are sure to enjoy it – if you haven’t, I would recommend you read those books first.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Magic mixed with practical wisdom 2016/8/20
投稿者 RUBIN Marta - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I couldn't put it down. Beside the lively spin of events all the characters were interesting and well defined. A real fun read touching your emotions and fulfilling your yearning for adventure from the safety of your armchair. Because the events of people living a normal life can offer as much adventure as a reader's heart can endure. It could be your neighbour or work mate, nobody would know but a sensitive writer with a masterful pen and a deeply humane understanding of how things work. And although she is not preaching it, which is all the better, a great faith. Thank you!

Now I hope there will be some occasion when the rest of this series gets on sale with a considerable discount.... only my purse curbs my ardent desire to follow the threads woven in this book. I wish to immerse in this realistic magic again.
