    The blurb to this popular book really piued my interest However it didn't take long for me to become discouraged with the principal plotline This book begins with a dark and morose topic which turned me off I immediately came to the conclusion that this storyline did not sound like a Christian tale to me There is so much darkness hatred and violence in the world that I prefer my literary fiction to include wit humor and inspiration I did not read the comments prior to starting the book or I would have been saved some time Not only did the contents disturb me but then I discovered there will be a dual timeline Those can be tricky to execute and I'm glad I avoided suchAlthough I thoroughly enjoyed the Royal Wedding series repeatedly I chose not to complete this book It is not the type of Christian inspiration that lifts my spirit There are many who have sung high praises for this book and many will probably follow I suppose if many enjoy it that is what counts in the long run You can't please everyone all the time

    Oh wow Just beautiful I have loved all of her books and was very curious when I saw this description Knowing Rachel’s writing style I wasn’t sure how to reconcile the idea of a memory house From the very beginning I was sucked in as I always am with her stories All the stories captivated me and didn’t let loose until the very end Even now the characters challenges and moments of growth bless and challenge my heartI received a complimentary copy of this book from Thomas Nelson through NetGalley Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own

    Reviewed at The Power of Words talented Rachel Hauck writes in a variety of styles and settings and all of her books have touched me in some way But The Memory House? It’s truly special deeply rooted in faith my favorite of all she’s written so far There’s romance of course but this story is so very much Family is whoever fits into your heartThe Memory House is poignant and emotionally captivating Hauck is a master of the dual timeline and I was deeply invested in both worlds Everleigh’s story brings the history of the 1953 tornado in Waco Texas alive a defining moment in her life Beck’s defining moment went back to the events surrounding 911 resulting in emotionally suppressed memories While I enjoy dual timelines I usually favor one storyline over the other but here it’s like the years fell away and I was reading one intricately woven story The characters have emotional stories and are flawed in a way that made them minister to me than a “whole” person ever could He suspected Mom’s prayers had a hand in thisThe vitalness of prayer is subtlety seen as are the themes of faith forgiveness and a loving God who is always at our side no matter the circumstances Everleigh ministers through her heartbreak reminding me of the way my own life has been touched by some dear saints I may be reading into this than intended but Beck takes in a precious little dog that needed rescuing and in addition to having my heart stolen by Beetle Boo I kept reflecting on the human need to be rescued and loved by God The revelation of the connection between old and new themes was surprising – and perfect The Memory House is a keeper a “best of the best” read for meHighly recommendedI received a copy of this book through Read with Audra and Thomas Nelson The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own

    I loved this book and it uickly turned into a uick page turner and a sense of loss when the last page was turned and how appropriate is the titleThe author draws us in with two strong main characters both woman and both willing to make the ultimate sacrifice Disasters are what make them similar and great men who loved them to the endWe span decades and yet things are the same but different and find a home in a uiet town in Florida to be catalyst to healingWarning once you start this one you will not want to put it downI received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Thomas Nelson and was not reuired to give a positive review

    Rachel Hauck is one of those authors I will always purchase without even reading the book synopsis Her books are always filled with history love forgiveness and a story that comes together so perfectly This book meets those expectations perfectlyI fell in love with these characters as soon as I met them I loved that much of the story took place in Texas a state so very close to me and the history that happened during the Waco tornado I also thought Florida was the perfect setting for this couple to land and make their life togetherThe characters in this book did not necessarily follow the standard picture of the Christian fiction book and I think that made me like them even They had their flaws they found themselves living with the conseuences of their mistakes and they pushed through to make a life for themselves regardlessThe love that happened between Everleigh and Don reminds me so much of my grandparents' generation and the way they deeply love with all their heart through everything life throws at them They work hard to create their life their livelihood and a legacy for their children and grandchildrenBeck and Bruno seemed to be the perfect example of today's generation and their tendency to find themselves floundering around looking for a career and always striving to better themselves from their current situationBut both couples found exactly what they needed in life God God's love came through for them in big ways and small and He took care of all of them through everything in their life I rejoiced in watching these characters find God and find the true loves of their livesAnd the connection we find at the end priceless The ways Rachel Hauck always brings the old together with the new completely surprises me every time and reminds me why I always love a perfect Hauck book
