Did you love The Florentine Bridge by Melbourne author, Vanessa Carnevale? I certainly did, so I am thrilled to be now showing off the cover and sharing the blurb for Vanessa’s next novel, The Memories That Make Us, due for release in March 2018.
Isn’t this an absolutely stunning cover?! Just beautiful!
And the inside of the book promises to be just as gorgeous as the outside packaging:
‘A warm, hopeful and uniquely Australian read that reminds you what is important in life.’ Sally Hepworth, bestselling author of The Secrets of Midwives.
The Memories That Make Us…
Here are some things you should know:
The yellow toothbrush is mine.
You sleep with your socks on.
You set your alarm for 5:45 am every morning and then you go for a run.
You and I were the closest thing to perfect I ever knew in my life.
Gracie Ashcroft is supposed to marry Blake Beaumont in three months’ time. The trouble is, she doesn’t know who he is…
After an accident leaves Gracie with severe amnesia, she’s forced to decide: live a life that is made up of other people’s memories of who she was, or start a new life on her own. Leaving her fiancé Blake behind, she moves to the country where she takes on the task of reviving her family’s abandoned flower farm.
While attempting to restart a business with an uncertain future, she tries to come to terms with the grief of losing a mother she can’t remember and a fiancé she so badly wants to fall in love with again. What she doesn’t count on is developing a deep connection with Flynn, a local vet. Worst of all is having to confront the fact that she might lose either chance at love.
Forced to examine the person she has become, Gracie confronts the question: if you had your time over, would you live the same life twice?
‘This book is set on a fictional flower farm in one of my favourite places in Australia — Daylesford, Victoria. It’s a story of self-discovery, fate, and the power of choices, that speaks to the question, if you had your time over, would you live the same life twice? I’ve always been fascinated by the role our memories play in our lives, and anyone that follows me on Instagram knows I adore flowers, so this book merges these two themes. I really hope you love it.’ Vanessa Carnevale.
