The Memory House by Rachel Hauck



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.

Everleigh Applegate and Beck Holiday, separated by fifty years, but joined together by devastating loss, secrets, and men who want to give them happiness again. Rachel Hauck has written another amazing story that will fill our minds and take us on a journey that will stay with us long after we close the pages of this book!

Another story that I love, love, love! The characters are so realistic I can feel the pain they have suffered while reading the words describing their feelings. Everleigh’s story is written around the era I was born and my early years, which I always love to read about. And Rachel Hauck is the very best when it comes to writing time slip stories. I love the way she goes from one era to the other so fluently and make the plot play out so smoothly. There are a number of issues dealt with in this book, starting with Beck being suspended from her job as a cop because of misconduct. Though I can understand her going off, it was just the wrong place and at the wrong time. My heart went out to Beck and Everleigh because of the lifechanging losses they had to deal with. And Ms. Hauck dealt with these losses and changes with class! And I can’t leave out the men that came into both of these ladies lives. Both Don and Bruno were humble characters, dealing with somewhat the same issues in their lives. And their decisions were made easier by their friendship with these ladies. And if you want to know all of the details and what happens with Everleigh and Beck, I highly recommend you pick up a copy of The Memory House.
