Publisher's Summary

Julianne Westcott was living the kind of life that other Protestant girls in prewar Liverpool could only dream about: old money, silk ball gowns, and prominent young men lining up to escort her. But when she learns of a blind-and-deaf brother, institutionalized since birth, the illusion of her perfect life and family shatters around her.

While visiting her brother in secret, Julianne meets and befriends Kyle McCarthy, an Irish Catholic groundskeeper studying to become a priest. Caught between her family's expectations, Kyle's devotion to the Church, and the intense new feelings that the forbidden courtship has awakened in her, Julianne must make a choice: uphold the life she's always known or follow the difficult path toward love.

But as war ripples through the world and the Blitz decimates England, a tragic accident forces Julianne to leave everything behind and forge a new life built on lies she's told to protect the ones she loves. Now, after 20 years of hiding from her past, the truth finds her - will she be brave enough to face it?

    "Loved this Story!"

    I loved this story. It has everything g a good love story needs. Fate, ambition, persistence and undeniable love! Kyle is every woman's dream minus the priesthood! I liked that it ended with her at the confessional and reuniting. Great job on the accents and characters...I saw them in my minds eye!

    Story
    "Joy, Sorrow and Love- A must read!"

    I feel compelled to leave a review. There are only a handful of books that have truly scorched my soul and this is one of them. Absolutely beautifully written so that the reader can smell, see, and feel what the characters are experiencing. A time before mine and a religion that I’ve never experienced and yet I was there. Flawed and yet courageous characters, a love story, a bittersweet plot. So much like life that it hurts and heals and deeply resonates. Thank you Author for this story. And thank you Narrator for switching seemlessly between accents and for feeling each word.

    Story
    "My Musings"

    At least one time a year, I will read a book that touches me to my very soul. The Memory of Us did that. Early on in the book, I almost quit reading because I found Judith a bit frivolous, but the plot continued to keep me engaged. I'm so thankful I kept reading/listening!

    The love story between the hero and heroine is emotionally-charged while incredibly sad. Poor Judith just couldn't believe anyone could love her despite her problems. I don't want to give any of the plot away, but I encourage to embrace this marvelous book.

    Please read this amazing book. If no other reason then that it is a fantastic depiction of the hardship and trials people faced during that horrific war, but I'm sure you will appreciate the great love between the couple. I rarely cry when reading a book, but this one definitely brought tears to my eyes. This is the best book I've read in 2017. It will definitely remain on my keeper shelf. Happy reading!

    "Unexpected pleasure"

    What I really liked about this book was that it was unexpected in its characterization, in the development of the story and I really enjoyed the 'voices' of the different characters.
    I had Neiva head of this sofa before but will definitely look for more of his books. I'll also look for more books near rated by Fiona hadn't him
