Ophelia has a gift and is waiting for a special someone to keep the memories from fading away and disappearing. She thinks Annie may just be that person. From their first meeting they feel an almost immediate liking for each other and bond over pots of dandelion tea. Ophelia is skilled in the use of herbs and flowers, their magical and healing qualities and grows them for her own use as well as selling them in her apothecary shop.
Annie was only planning to stay a night or two but spends a week helping in the garden and listening to Ophelia’s stories. The peace and tranquility Annie feels at Memory House is like a balm to her soul and she doesn’t want to leave.
Ophelia tells Annie about her dearly loved husband, Edward, and how he fixed up the attic for their bedroom, putting in a skylight so she could lay in bed and watch the stars. Her happiness in those memories shines through and makes Annie question the foundation of her relationship with Michael when he decides he wants her back. Ophelia shows Annie an old bible and talks about who it belonged to.Read more ›
You live with them for a while.
Spare Change,Twelfth Child, Previously Loved Treasures all relate to this story. Its Memory House. This is not just full of Ophelia's Memories of the past and her life she lived in the past books written by Bette Lee Crosby, its also our trip down memory lane with her.
Special memories that we can share with Ophelia now that she is older, very much older and can reflect.
Annie has a lot of things to put up with in her life, her fella isn't much cop! He's a right jerk. When she decides to take a trip and stay in a bed & breakfast, this is where Ophelia is, its her B&B.
Ophelia has a lovely gift, a great talent and helps Annie in her decisions for the future. A bond is made.
I thought this a wonderful advancement to all the books so far that Bette Lee Crosby has written, great idea to move them on and combine Memory House, like a trip down memory lane, but also showing how Ophelia has grown, now a dear old lady with such a kind, dear heartwarming personality.
Thank you Bette Lee Crosby for allowing me to pre read this, you know, I always love your style of writing.
Not my thing at all and was very sure it's a story about a budding psychic not a memory keeper. Could smell the lavender coming off the kindle so feel pretty sure your Great-grand Ma would love it!
Stylistically it's very interesting. There are three main voices (with one notable detour into Michael). There are personal dialogues from Ophelia and Annie interspersed with the main bulk of the story, which is told be a narrator. It took a few chapters to get used to it, but once I had, I really enjoyed it. I loved the voices of the main characters and identified really strongly with both of them.
The book is laced with so much life wisdom, lessons to learn about love and happiness and the finding of a fulfilling path. It's a book about taking chances on the things that speak to your heart instead of your brain. It's a story of how stories can keep things and people alive long after they are dust and woodsmoke. It's a book about learning to trust your intuition when every iota of common sense in your body is screaming for the alternative. I could have happily quoted any number of statements from it but it's a good quarter of the book!
The only major downfall of this book for me was the ending. It just cuts off, almost as though the author accidentally forgot to insert the last 3 chapters. The strings of the story just trail off into nowhere without explaining the connection between Oliver and Edward or filling in any of the background behind what Annie sensed in the bike.Read more ›

I enjoyed the warmth and wisdom of the characters. Worth reading. I just wasn't tempted to read the other books in the series. This story is sufficient as a stand alone.Published 1 month ago by PiePony
