Memories in the Drift eBook Ú Memories in Epub /
Uncommonly Beautiful BookThe author hooked me right away with this book, as we are dropped right into Claire’s life as she is trying to make sense of her day Why is this difficult? She suffered an accident years ago that essentially makes her forget what happens to her each day moving forward The way she picks up situational clues and has it set up her world of notebooks, todo lists, and calendars is surprisingly riveting She only remembers her past in good detail; every day is new She had a troubled life before, including a mother who left and a man who did not treat her right When they both reappear in her life, what will that change for her? I loved the sense of community the author showed in vivid detail; everybody is wonderfully helpful and understanding of Claire's predicament Claire is so resilient and hopeful even though she has this hardforustofathom problem This book certainly examines how to be the best you can be, no matter the difficult circumstances you might face The book, too, will likely make you cry in places; I love heartfelt, emotional reads like this one The author has created such a complex, sympathetic character, showing us how she triumphs over her daytoday struggles as well as her problems from the past An exceptionally welldone novel.My book blog: I got this onPrime first reads and although it isnt my usuall genre, it seemed the most interesting of all the choices that were on offer.It was interesting and I'm glad I read it as it kept me guessing and curious throughout.I guess for me the only let down is that I would have loved to know how Maree reacted to the fact that Claire was her mother, I felt that that was a pivotal part of the story that was left out, we know from the end of the book she was happy about it but what about when she first found out? Just a few pages on that and how she was told etc I feel would have added to the story and made it much better, just a personal opinion though.I believe this author has other books so I will definitely check them out ’ve looked forward to another book by this author since I read The Secrets of Lost Stones, so I knew this had to be myFirst Reads choice this month The premise really intrigued me as I’ve read and enjoyed books about memory loss and amnesia in the past I was looking forward to seeing how the author dealt with the subject I really enjoyed this aspect of the book, Claire copies by writing everything down, setting up a detailed schedule for every day and setting up reminders on her phone It also helps that she lives in a small town where everyone rallies round her to be her memory, help her and nobody is bothered by how many times they need to introduce themselves I fell in love with the town and the people who cared so much This is a real tearjerker A great read. An interesting story about a woman with an impossible problemher shortterm memory is gone How can you survive when you can't remember anything but your old memories for longer than five minutes? The answer is you take careful notes and let the people you love help you This story was set in a real but unusual small town in Alaska where everyone lives in apartments in one tall building In addition to dealing with memory loss, the novel dealt with alcoholism and child abuse So it's a complicated but ultimately warming story The only objection I had was the relationship between the main character and a young girl that is revealed at the end of the book It was a stretch to believe it and how everyone had gone along with the painful charade for ten long years.

So different, poignant, beautiful, as well as opening to me with gentleness and humour a medical condition I’ve never met before, and introducing me to a location completely new to me The characters are so genuine, warm and supportive of each other, with a huge depth of understanding And little Maree is adorable, with a depth of empathy beyond her years I want to read manyby this author. Beautiful storytelling I read this book on a long flight and was riveted I’m so glad I had the time to finish it The author’s ability to express what the main character was feeling was beyond amazing It was so insightful to understand what it must feel like to have amnesia I loved all the characters and the setting The quotes that she used were very inspirational as well as the beautiful notes that her mother gave her One of my top favorite books this year. Thank you for allowing me to preview this book Having previously read a book by this author, i thought i'd give another shot but, NOPE! though both books were well written they were just too predictable I am not a fan of lifetime movies but if i were, this book would be a great choice I felt the plot dragged on too long once it was figured outaround chapter two Doubtful i'll purchase a book from this author. Extraordinary and thought provoking!This book was amazing! I've never considered how it would be too loose short term memory The twist and turns were happy, sad, brave, and scary A wonderful read that will make you appreciate your life and abilities with new awareness I recommend it to everyone! You won't be disappointed! Heartwarming, did remind me a little of the film 50 first dates which covers a similar theme Thought this books portrayal of memory loss was really accurate, emotional memory remaining when events emotions are connected to are not I would highly recommend it.
