The Memory Jar By Tricia Goyer


Book One in the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series.

About The Memory Jar:
Every year, 30-40 young Amish men descend on the cozy little town of West Kootenai, Montana, arriving in the spring to live there for six months and receive ‘resident’ status for the hunting season in the fall. They arrive as bachelors, but go home with brides! Sarah Shelter has lived in West Kootenai for the last ten years and wonders if she will ever fall in love. Since the tragic death of her best friend, she carries her memories in a jar along with the small items connected to them. For just as long, she’s also been carrying around her emotions instead of allowing them to penetrate deep into her heart. Now she’s met a kind and gentle man who may be able to break down the wall. But can Sarah risk her heart to finally achieve her dreams?
My Thoughts:
I am a HUGE Tricia Goyer fan. I have reviewed her books from the awesome Big Sky Series and was very excited to start the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series. The Memory Jar by Tricia Goyer did not disappoint. Like Tricia’s other Amish novels, The Memory Jar is written in a way that really draws you into the story and makes you root for all of the characters.
These stories aren’t just Amish stories either. They are romance novels. I think the thing I like the best about The Memory Jar is that not only do we see Sarah deal with her memories and her grief over losing a friend, we also see her fall in love (with someone she didn’t really even like) as well as learn to use a God given talent. And it happens in such a beautiful and natural way. Not all romance novels have to be filled with lust and sex. They can tell the story of love and compassion without all that. And that makes for one heck of a good story!
Tricia Goyer also has a wonderfully unique way of bringing in characters from her other series. That helps each of her stories connect and helps the reader develop a relationship with each one. I LOVE that!
I can’t wait to read the rest of the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series! And by the way, I sure wish I had one of Sarah’s cupcakes!
