The Memory of Us by Lisa Sorbe is a contemporary adult romance story that is raw and takes you on a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. It is a story of love and loss, heartache and second chances. Of memories and what if’s, of looking for something that could only be found deep inside yourself. The characters are well developed and their lives will hit you right in the heart and have you falling in love with them. There are flashbacks to explain the back stories and how they got to where they are now. Lisa’s description of the town and its people is so vivid you can imagine it.
Elena is a successful lawyer and a killer in the courtroom and always keeps her emotions at bay. So when she returns home, years after she left, she is at a crossroad and struggling and until she really lets herself feel and work through her emotions and memories can she truly begin to live again.
It is a beautiful and bittersweet story that is a great read
