The House of Memories

Cover: 'The House of Memories'

Staff Review: "The House of Memories" by Monica McInerney


What an amazing, moving journey this book took me on! Ella has just tragically lost her young son. Unable to deal with the grief or look her husband or step-sister in the eye, both of whom she blames for her son's death, Ella escapes to London. There, she stays with the only family she has ever really loved, her beloved Uncle who has secrets of his own. This novel was heartbreaking at times, but I fell in love with the characters so much I just couldn't stop reading. Their journey is one of healing, showing the raw power of family. Highly recommended!
