Reconciled, Elizabeth and Michael Calloway are in the process of rebuilding their marriage when their new-found hope is shattered by a hit-and-run driver. Terrified and helpless, Michael stays by Elizabeth's bedside and begs God to spare her life. When she finally emerges from her coma, it's into a frightening, unknown world, with no recollection of the man who says he's her husband or of the little girl who calls her 'mom'.

A constant danger lurks in the background, and it's urgent for Elizabeth to regain her memory. She must if she's to identify the person responsible before he succeeds in silencing her forever.

Though the suspense is well done in this book, perhaps the most fascinating, page-turning element is Elizabeth's struggle and frustration as she fights to regain her memory. The sheer beauty of this love story demonstrates why Peggy Darty is a favorite among inspirational readers, and with MEMORIES, she's certain to win many romantic suspense fans as well.
