    ?I?m just saying God has a way of taking the worst situation and turning it for good.? "That's not what I mean, but life, miracles, have a way of coinciding." I have read several Rachel Hauck novels and enjoyed them, but I think this one is my favorite so far. I loved the d...

    Rachel Hauck has done it again. The Memory House intrigued me from the opening pages. Can a person remember the things her mind is determined to block? In this dual-timeline novel, Hauck beautifully weaves two stories and two women?s lives together through the Memory House. When New ...

    I loved this book and it quickly turned into a quick page turner, and a sense of loss when the last page was turned, and how appropriate is the title! The author draws us in with two strong main characters, both woman, and both willing to make the ultimate sacrifice. Disasters are wha...

    Wow! What a sneak peak! This chapter details a rough female police sergeant along with her who catches a young criminal and surprised at what they found. Beck is a tough one. It?s cool to see a female cop as a lead. This looks it will be a great read! Can?t wait for next month! ...

    The Memory House is a dual timeline romance set in Waco,Texas and modern-day Fernandina Beach, Florida. As a contemporary romance reader, I was initially uncertain about dual timeline settings found in most of Rachel Hauck's recent novels. I'm so glad I tried something new because I've...

    4 1/2. This is a beautiful story of finding love after tragedy. The narrative is told from 4 POVs, Everleigh and Don from the 1960s, and Beck and Bruno from the present. I don't usually like that many POVs in a romance, but I quickly got pulled into their problems and pain. E...

    The Memory House tells of 4 people, Beck, Everliegh, Bruno, and Don. Each tells their story of how they came to be at the Memory house. Beck and Bruno are the modern day while Everliegh and Don are from the past. I seriously thought I had this story figured out but it wasn't until the ...

    I really enjoyed this story! I may have intentionally read it slowly so it wouldn?t end! Haha The story was told from four points of view and in two time periods. Here are two of my favorite quotes: ?Beck, I?m not sure I can let you go again. You smooth things out for m...

    .. The blurb to this popular book really piqued my interest. However, it didn't take long for me to become discouraged with the principal plotline. This book begins with a dark and morose topic, which turned me off. I immediately came to the conclusion that this storyline did not soun...

    Oh wow! Just beautiful. I have loved all of her books and was very curious when I saw this description. Knowing Rachel?s writing style, I wasn?t sure how to reconcile the idea of a memory house. From the very beginning, I was sucked in, as I always am with her stories. All the stor...
