- Self Love
One moment can change your life
When Gracie Ashcroft wakes after a crash with severe amnesia, she must choose whether to live a life through other people’s memories or to start a new life all her own.
Discovering her late mother left her an old flower farm, Gracie leaves her fiancé, best friend and the home full of forgotten memories behind, hoping to learn who she is now.
Torn between wishing she could remember and afraid of losing what she now has, Gracie starts to wonder: if you had your time over, would you live the same life twice?
The feel-good and sweeping love story that fans of Harriet Evans, Lucy Dillon and Ruth Hogan will love
Memories of Us is a stop and think book. What would I do if this happened to me? Gracie is in a car accident with her boyfriend and they have a terrible car crash which leads to Gracie having severe amnesia. Our journey from there as the reader is to follow Gracie as she makes power choices and we see if she finds “herself” again.
Gracie Ashcroft was a likeable character from the start, I loved how strong she was in her determination not to be told who she used to be. Flowers are a beautiful character in the book. I learned so much about them and I could smell them in my head as I read. It was a unique factor and extremely clever to include them.
I found sometimes, there was some repetitiveness throughout the book and I did feel that the side storylines which contained some fragile topics, were not tied up properly at the end. For me, the ending felt all a bit rushed.
Overall a dive in read for summer, you will laugh, cry and come away with a deep appreciation for all flowers.
