The Memory House by Rachel Hauck | Blog Tour

A woman who's on shaky ground in her job as a New York city cop. A struggling sports agent starting over. An inherited house and the story of its origins.

All of these details woven together by the skill of master story teller Rachel Hauck!

I am excited to be a part of this tour to spread the word about The Memory House which just came out April 1st!

Check out the back cover summary:

When Beck Holiday lost her father in the North Tower on 9/11, she also lost her memories of him. Eighteen years later, she’s a tough New York City cop burdened with a damaging secret, suspended for misconduct, and struggling to get her life in order. Meanwhile a mysterious letter arrives informing her she’s inherited a house along Florida’s northern coast, and what she discovers there will change her life forever. Matters of the heart only become more complicated when she runs into handsome Bruno Endicott, a driven sports agent who fondly recalls the connection they shared as teenagers. But Beck doesn’t remember that, either.

Decades earlier, widow Everleigh Applegate lives a steady, uneventful life with her widowed mother after a tornado ripped through Waco, Texas, and destroyed her new, young married life. When she runs into old high school friend Don Callahan, she begins to yearn for change. Yet no matter how much she longs to love again, she is hindered by a secret she can never share.

Fifty years separate the women but through the power of love and miracle of faith, they each find healing in a beautiful Victorian known affectionately as The Memory House.

My thoughts...

Memories can be special as well as difficult. In this book, Rachel tackles some really raw, real-life things but in such a beautiful way (as she always does).

I remember the exact location of where I was when 9/11 happened, sitting in the living room of my parents house and watching the television with shock and surprise and disbelief. This couldn't be happening, could it? And then, before my eyes, the second tower fell. To me, the power of that still-sharp memory is more than just the sadness, but the memory of what happened after.

In the same way, Rachel tackles the things we face in our own lives: secrets. They can either have the power to destroy us or to free.
