More than We Remember
One night changes everything for three women. . . .
When Addison Killbourn's husband is involved in a car accident that leaves a woman dead, her perfectly constructed life crumbles apart. With her husband's memory of that night gone and the revelation of a potentially life-altering secret, Addison has to reevaluate all she thought she knew.
Emilia Cruz is a deputy bearing a heavy burden far beyond the weight of her job. Her husband is no longer the man she married, and Emilia's determined to prevent others from facing the same hardship. When she's called to the scene of an accident pointing to everything she's fighting against, she's determined to see justice for those wronged.
Brianne Demanno is hiding from reality. She was thriving as a counselor, but when tragedy struck a beloved client, she lost faith in herself and her purpose. When her neighbors, the Killbourns, are thrown into crisis, Brianne's solitary life is disrupted and she finds herself needed in a way she hasn't been in a while.
As the lives of these women intersect, they can no longer dwell in the memory of who they've been. Can they rise from the wreck of the worst moments of their lives to become who they were meant to be?
My thoughts: I loved the many layers of this story! Christina crafts a hard to put down story with More than We Remember. When Addison's husband is in an accident that points to his being a different person than she has known in their marriage, her world is turned upside down. I love how this story explores our memories and how they can be colored by our experiences. I know several of memories of mine came to mind as I was reading the story where I thought something was a certain way in childhood (much like Brianne and what she thinks her parents opinion was of her becoming a counselor were), only to find out that it wasn't what someone thought of me as I got older. I also appreciated the reminder that we need to treasure each moment as it comes, since things can change in the blink of an eye.
This story is hard to put down! I highly recommend it.
I received this book from Bethany House. This is my honest review.
