WHAT I REMEMBER MOST
Lamb is an awesome storyteller and moves seamlessly from the past to the present — not an easy feat for some writers. The main character is strong, resilient and serves as a reminder to readers that any tragedy can be overcome. Inspiring and relentless, this tale embodies the true strength of a woman and is worth all 400-plus pages of horror, sadness, defeat and triumph.
Grenadine Scotch Wild made a reputation as a celebrated artist, despite her rough childhood in the foster care system. She has had to recreate herself more than once and is forced to do so when her husband, Covey, is arrested for fraud and embezzlement and intent on taking his wife down with him. After filing for divorce, she retreats to a small town in Oregon where she lands two jobs. Though she makes some new friends, she is hesitant to reveal the truth about her past and precarious future.
