About the Book
After a tragic accident robs her of the last nine years of memories, Lori Mendenhall comes home to a family completely different than she remembers. As her memory returns and past secrets resurface, it will take all of them to repair what’s been broken and find a new future together.
In My Opinion
Janine Rosche has quickly become a must-read contemporary romance author for me right up there alongside Nicole Deese, Denise Hunter, and Susan Tuttle. Her newest release with a brand new (for her) publisher (Revell) was one I was highly anticipating, and y’all, With Every Memory did not disappoint.
First, while there is a thread of romance in this book, it leans more toward women’s fiction. But I’m not at all upset about it. This book was such a beautiful journey of a family’s healing, I don’t think the author could have captured all aspects if she’d gone the romance route.
This story had me in tears at times. The pain and loss. The hurts and heartache the characters silently carry. The longing they each have for something different, something better just resonated with me as I’m sure it will with many readers.
Lori, Avery, Michael, Xander, and even Austin are characters that will stick with me because in the messiness of their lives—in the uncertainty of truth sometimes—they each carry the light of hope. At times that light is dim, almost unseen in the dark times they are wading through, but then, in a moment of realization, it shines brighter.
Rosche does a wonderful job of balancing the heavy topics of grief, loneliness, amnesia, and broken families with moments of love, joy, and good memories, allowing readers a reprieve from the harder emotions.
