Love Water Memory by Jennie Shortridge

Love Water Memory by Jennie Shortridge

A woman is standing off the coast of San Francisco in about two feet of water.  She is staring off into the distance, holding her shoes and wondering how she got there.  Some nice swimmers get her to the hospital where she comes to the realization that she has no clue who she is.  After her story is run on the local newstations a man, her fiancé, comes to claim her and bring her home to Seattle.  Lucie, who is surprised to learn her name is Lucie, seems very different from the successful, fashion conscious and hyper-organized woman Grady asked to marry him.  Can he love this new Lucie as much as the former one?


Most “I suddenly have amnesia” books tend to be lighthearted.  Not this one.  There is a reason Lucie ran, and a reason she’s blanked out her past.  Lucie needs to remember the trauma of her childhood, a trauma she blanked out once before.  This is a love story, the love between Lucie and Grady (who is wonderful by the way) and how they are coping with her transformation.  But it is also a coming of age story; a soon to be 40-year-old woman who is only now dealing with the events of her past.
