What do you do when “THE THINGS WE KNEW” are buried and keeping us from the life we want? Catherine West takes us down the road of repressed memories, nightmares and freedom once everything is exposed and dealt with.
Lynette Carlisle was just a girl of twelve when her mother died. The youngest of five, she assumes the responsibility of her aging dad that is slipping away into Alzheimer’s. She is also single handily trying to keep the home that is falling into disrepair but holds tantalizing memories of a life she once knew.
Nick Cooper is the boy next door, the brother’s best friend, the childhood crush, that went off to college and just now returns years later.
About to lose the only home she’s ever known, she summons her siblings home to decide how to save it or if they have to sell.
The book will keep you in suspense, the family dynamics reminiscence of many others, the unfulfilled childhood crush possibly overdone in romance books, however, it is well worth reading. I do admit not totally satisfied with the ending, but then it is a novel and the author’s prerogative. Smile!
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers for an honest review.
