by Bette Lee Crosby
Annie Cross is running from a broken love affair and the only thing she wants is to forget; but once she meets Ophelia Browne she just might discover there are far greater joys in remembering.
Ophelia remembers everything. She remembers things from her own life and from the lives of those who came before her. She has only to touch her hand to an object and she can feel the special memories clinging to it. But now she is nearing ninety and needs to find a caretaker for these memories. If death comes before she finds someone, the memories will be lost forever. Ophelia prays this won’t happen.
When Annie shows up on the doorstep of the Memory House Bed and Breakfast Ophelia knows she is the one. Seldom has she come across such deep violet eyes, and never with the flecks of green that once could be seen in her own reflection.
The two women forge a friendship and forgotten memories begin to unfold, but before long a thread of violence starts to unravel and Ophelia fears things may have gone too far.
