An emotionally charged and captivating novel about the complexities of female friendship and motherhood.
Lizzie Thomson has landed her first job as a music teacher, and after a whirlwind romance with Markus, the newlywed couple move into a beautiful new home in the outskirts of Edinburgh. Lizzie quickly befriends their neighbour Morag, an elderly, resourceful yet lonely widow, who’s own children rarely visit her. Everything seems perfect in Lizzie’s life until she finds out she is pregnant and her relationship with both Morag and Markus change beyond her control.
Can Lizzie really trust Morag and why is Markus keeping secrets from her?
In ‘The Memories We Bury’ the author explores the dangerous bonds we can create with strangers and how past memories can cast long shadows over the present.
I thought that this was an excellent story!
I love this author’s books and writing style so when I saw that she had a new release out, The Memories We Bury, I jumped at the chance to get my hands on a copy and it was so worth it!!
The plot is very well developed and it really had me on tenterhooks in places too. The characters were great and they worked so well with the plot too. I thought that Lizzie was a great character, I really sympathised with her at times and wanted to give her a big hug. They all helped add to the suspense that was building up as the book got towards the excellent ending, I was completed hooked and drawn in and couldn’t wait to find out how it would all end!
It is 5 stars from me for this one, I really enjoyed the story – it is very well written and it was an addictive read! Very highly recommended!!
