The Memory of Us by Lisa Sorbe – Review by Julie Lounello

The Memory of UsThe Memory of Us by Lisa Sorbe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Memory of Us by Lisa Sorbe is a five star novel. I loved this novel about love, friendship, confusion and loss. Laney was a girl who had lost so much as a young teenager. Her father and brother are just two prime examples of the loss she has experienced. Many years later, when her mom dies, she ends up in her small hometown again and realizes the only love she has had, aside from her family, still lives next door. When she left after high school, she thought it was only right to let him go because she had dreams of leaving her miserable life behind and find herself again in the big city. Even her mom was a different person when she came to visit, away from the dark cloud of loss at home. Arizona Elena is trying to figure out now who she is compared to the Minnesota Laney she left behind. Hopefully she will be able to find herself as who she really is and not who she thinks people expect her to be in either of those places.

The Memory of Us by Lisa Sorbe is the story of Elena. She has come back home after her mother’s death and has to deal with the aftermath. The one person she does not want to see is Weston and back into her life he comes. Can she stand strong in all her grief and the past coming back to her?
This story is very emotional and powerful. Going back home to the life you left behind is hard but even harder with the death of a parent. Elena is a complex character. She is strong but can be weak at the same time. Weston is wonderfully written also. There are ups and downs and decisions that have to be made. The emotions are powerful and kept me reading to see where Elena would end up. This was a good read and overall I enjoyed it.

I’ve been hooked on Lisa Sorbe’s writing since the first page of the first book in her Prairie Tales series. Needless to say when I saw a book I haven’t read written by her I pounced without giving it a second thought.

The Memory of Us has everything I have come
to love in Lisa Sorbe’s writing. The story itself is emotional without becoming too overpowering, it is real and raw. Elena is a strong, admirable character that makes the story unforgettable.

The Memory of Us was a book that hooked me
from the start and kept my interest to the very last
line. I am looking forward to more to come from Lisa Sorbe. This is definitely another 5 star read I would highly recommend to others.

The Memory of Us is the mind-blowing story of second chances by Lisa Sorbe! I have read EVERY SINGLE ONE of her books and I have to say that she gets better with every one! The opening scene sets the stage to a story that keeps you at the edge of your seat from the beginning to the end!
The Memory of Us is the story of Elena Everhart and Weston Brooks. Elena always had a plan what she was going to do to achieve her dreams and she was following it … except for Weston … she had not counted for him and the feelings he evoked in her … their chemistry … their history … what a rollercoaster! They leave you raw and aching and you keep your fingers crossed that they will get their second chance! The writer excels at getting us into Elena’s head and showing us what goes on inside … they layers … she is so different from what she portrays outside! I loved that the writer uses only one voice when telling the story – Elena’s – it really helps us to feel the depth of her feelings and her grief!
The Memory of Us is a book you do not want to miss and I promise you, you will become a fan and will go and read also the other books she has published!

If I could describe this book in one word it would be – FATE. The Memory of Us by Lisa Sorbe had the right amount of a push-pull relationship with a side of an emotional roller coaster to keep you turning the pages. Elena and Weston are meant to be together no matter the length of time apart or distance between them. As this was my first book by this author and I’m a sucker for a good second chance romance: I really enjoyed Elena and Weston’s story. This book needs to be on everyone’s TBR for the year.

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

When I read the description of “The Memory of Us” I thought it was going to be like so many other romance books I have read over the years. They all follow a typical boy and girl see each other after years of being apart and rekindle their relationship. While this book sort of follows those lines, it is so much more than that. Elena and West have known each other their whole lives and after years apart, rekindle a friendship that meant more to them than anything. Their relationship is anything but typical and it made me love this book. There are wonderful lessons and learning experiences for Elena in this story that many people could benefit from reading. I am a firm believer that the best relationships start out as friendships and this book really confirmed that for me. This truly was a lovely story and I really enjoyed reading about Elena and West and their expansive friendship. “The Memory of Us” by Lisa Sorbe earns a wholehearted five stars from me!

Four Stars

The Memory of Us is a new adult romance by Lisa Sorbe. This is not the first story I have read by Ms. Sorbe, but it is my new favorite. This book had me on an emotional roller coaster from beginning to end. Elena is such a strong female, who holds herself apart for fear of being hurt. When she returns to her home town after the death of her mother, she thinks it is for a short trip, but the memories make her think differently. Weston is the boy, best friend, she left behind when she left town twelve years ago and the first man she sees when coming back. This story flowed well and kept me rooting for Elena and Weston. If you are looking for a second chance romance this is just the story for you. I highly recommend this book and author. I can’t wait to see what Ms. Sorbe has in store for us next.

4 Stars!!!!

This is quite a refreshing read for me. I like how the author draws the characters together and how the past is such a major influence to the story. The book was so relatable and realistic. The book holds the reader’s interest and draws you into the world that is created.

Elena and West have such a magnetic chemistry that you can feel from the first time they see one another again after all the years they were apart. The reader can sense the tension and feel all the emotions that Elena goes through. I found myself routing for her and West. I like how the tension and drama is drawn out and there isn’t a quick end to the book. I really enjoyed how the author was able to draw it out and keep the reader engaged. I definitely will read more from this author in the future.

The Memory of Us
By Lisa Sorbe

I enjoyed every minute of reading this book. This story was very emotional, heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time. I loved reading the dynamic between Elena and Weston, it has been so long since they have seen each other and the attraction is still there but they have a lot of past feelings to work out. In the beginning I thought Elena seemed a bit rigid and unfeeling but as the story unfolds you realize that’s not who she is, sometimes we all hide what’s really going on inside. This is a wonderful story of second chances and wonderful characters. The author did an awesome job connecting me to the story and giving me a good emotional read. I highly recommend this book.
