The struggle is... real?

When I start suffering from major indecision over a small thing, I know it's time to take a step back and ask myself what's really going on.

The Memory House is a little bit about September 11th and is partially set in Waco. I'll be in Waco later this year and I can't decide if I should read it on September 11th or read it while in Waco.

"Embracing the future means remembering the past... 

When Beck Holiday lost her father in the North Tower on 9/11, she also lost her memories of him. Eighteen years later, she's a tough New York City cop burdened with a damaging secret, suspended for misconduct, and struggling to get her life in order. Meanwhile a mysterious letter arrives informing her she's inherited a house along Florida's northern coast, and what she discovers there will change her life forever. Matters of the heart only become more complicated when she reconnects with handsome Bruno Endicott, a driven sports agent who fondly recalls the connection they shared as teenagers. But Beck doesn't remember that either. 

Decades earlier, widow Everleigh Applegate lives a steady, uneventful life with her widowed mother after a tornado ripped through Waco, Texas, and destroyed her dreams for the future. When she runs into old high school friend Don Callahan, she begins to yearn for change. Yet no matter how much she longs to love again, she is hindered by a secret she can never share. 

Fifty years separate the women but through the power of love and the miracle of faith, they each find healing in a beautiful Victorian known affectionately as The Memory House."

Logically, I know this is a silly thing and won't at all matter in the grand scheme of things. Plus, it's far away! Still, I can't stop fretting over it when I see it in my bookshelf. 🤷🏼
