About the Book:
One night changes everything for three women. . . .
When Addison Killbourn’s husband is involved in a car accident that leaves a woman dead, her perfectly constructed life crumbles apart. With her husband’s memory of that night gone and the revelation of a potentially life-altering secret, Addison has to reevaluate all she thought she knew.
Emilia Cruz is a deputy bearing a heavy burden far beyond the weight of her job. Her husband is no longer the man she married, and Emilia’s determined to prevent others from facing the same hardship. When she’s called to the scene of an accident pointing to everything she’s fighting against, she’s determined to see justice for those wronged.
Brianne Demanno is hiding from reality. She was thriving as a counselor, but when tragedy struck a beloved client, she lost faith in herself and her purpose. When her neighbors, the Killbourns, are thrown into crisis, Brianne’s solitary life is disrupted and she finds herself needed in a way she hasn’t been in a while.
As the lives of these women intersect, they can no longer dwell in the memory of who they’ve been. Can they rise from the wreck of the worst moments of their lives to become who they were meant to be?
It’s always exciting trying new authors. Especially when you find that you enjoy them! “More Than We Remember” is a book that deals with trauma and loss, but also hope and restoration. We are taken along the journey of several different characters and their lives – and how one night’s tragedy affected them each differently.
I found this to be a gripping story, and it was interesting getting to know each of the characters. I loved Brianne’s side of the story, and her role as counselor. I am very interested in psychology, and seeing it play out in her story was fascinating.I liked how everything intertwined, and the ending brought it all together in a really good manner. We didn’t find out the truth of the accident till the very end, but that worked out really well.
I look forward to reading more by this author in the future! (And also, I adore the cover of this book!)
