Book Title: I Wish I Could Remember You
Author: L. J. Epps
Genre: Fiction, Romance, Contemporary Women’s
A story of enduring love as romance goes all wrong and Emily Montgomery struggles to rebuild her life after a terrible accident changes everything.
Emily wants romance in her life—the kind of romance that leads to a perfect marriage. She dreams of having a husband who loves her and treats her with respect, someone she can spend the rest of her life with. She meets—and marries—Steven Montgomery, hoping he will make all of those things come true.
Everything is wonderful, at first; until things start to slowly change. Steven begins to mentally, verbally, and physically abuse Emily. Through it all, Emily tries to be the best wife she can be.
Finally, after so much devastation, Emily leaves Steven, files for divorce, and moves on with her life. Her sister, Monica, introduces her to a wonderful man named Robert. Emily falls in love with him. He is kind, gentle and sweet—all things now missing from her marriage. She is happy, in love again, and well on her way to divorcing Steven.
But, Steven doesn’t want the divorce; and, since he is a savvy lawyer, he tries everything to prevent it. Although Emily still has residual feelings for Steven, she knows that it could never work between them. She wants to move on with the new love of her life, Robert.
After a horrific accident, Emily can no longer remember Robert and all the things he has meant to her, and she can no longer remember all the horrific things Steven has done to her.
Emily has two men professing their love for her. She is confused; she doesn’t know where she belongs or who she should be with. And, she has a hard time deciding who to choose. Emily is being pulled in several different directions by her loved ones. They all mean well, but only Emily knows how she truly feels. She has to decide, on her own, what to do.
All Emily wants is to start over, but that isn’t so easy, since everything in her world is broken, and she isn’t sure how to fix it. All Emily wants is to be happy, healthy, and whole again, but that may not be in the cards for her, either.
A very nice story about starting over (also literary), with great characters, that really caught me from the beginning. I loved every character, even the bad ones, because they were very nicely built and they actually started some feelings inside me while reading. Whether we speak about love and affection or hate and repugnance, the characters were very vivid and complex.
Emily has always wished a happy marriage, next to the man of her dreams. She felt the luckiest woman on Earth. Still, when her loving husband became a monster and her dreamy happy marriage became a real nightmare, she decided to put an end to it. She is ready to start over next to Robert, though she feels incomplete. When amnesia sets in, both men try to convince her who is worth her love and attention.
I believe self discovery is well depicted here. Emily has the chance to correct her mistakes and decide if her husband deserves another chance or if her love for Robert is real enough. A story full of lies and truths, a story about deciding who is for real and who is not, “I Wish I could remember You” was a great read and I must admit I was curious about how she will make the right choice. Even though the ending must seam predictable, the pages are a good way to get there. Hope you like it 🙂
