Oh my goodness, what an absolutely fantastic read this was. The Memory Keeper swept me up from the very first page and took me on a heart warming journey, it totally drew me in and left me feeling all squishy and warm.
Hannah Townsend has a plan, she’s going to surprise her boyfriend and whisk him off for a well needed holiday to Barbados, massages and cocktails, sounds perfect right? Well life has other plans for Hannah and instead of basking on a sandy beach she ends sharing a car in a snow storm trying to get back to her old home town where her grandmother is poorly.
I really liked Hannah, she was a great character. She’s not been home for a while, she’s been living and working in New York. She’s worked her way up to the perfect job in a magazine and only had fleeting visits to her hometown so being back is strange. My heart went out to her at the beginning of the story but as it progresses you can see how determined she is, her family means the world to her and it puts a fire in her belly.
There’s actually a whole host of fantastic characters in this book, it was so lovely getting to know them all.
I’m not going to give too much away about this story but it was an absolute joy to read. It was addictive and the way it’s written it’s was like looking through the characters eyes, I felt like I was there in every page.
This is my first book by Jenny Hale but it certainly won’t be the last. So if you’re looking for a story that will lift you up, give you a glow then The Memory Keeper is the one for you.
My names Dee-Cee, I’m a mum in my 30’s and I’m obsessed with reading. From an early age reading became a passion, but after a family tragedy back in 2014 my love of books has grown and it gives me an escape from grief and takes me into another world. I love Crime, Psychological thrillers, anything with a murder really. I leave reviews on my blog, Amazon UK, .com, Goodreads and Netgalley.
