Ophelia Browne has lived in her home for a long, long time. She has found that over the years, memories to come to her. Not only her own, but the memories of others as well. She is almost 90 years old and makes note that most women in her family, do not live past 90. She is hopeful that she will find someone to take over for her. Someone who will be able to keep the memories alive and run her bed and breakfast knows as Memory House.
Annie lives in Philadelphia and recently had a painful breakup with her long time boyfriend. She feels that weekend away is just what she needs to get back on track. She happens to stay at Memory House and immediately is drawn to Ophelia and her wonderful home. The women forge a friendship over the weekend that will impact both tremendously. As the sip their dandelion tea and unfold the stories of both of their lives, they will intertwine and impact both of their lives.
This story is a very sweet story of love, friendship, loss, discovery, moving on, living life fully, and perhaps even believing in magic. The real magic is in the storytelling. Bette Lee Crosby writes stories that have heart and are a pleasure to read. Be warned she may turn you into a tea drinker! All the tea drinking that goes in this book, made me want some as well. Her books are full of southern charm, and tales of love and friendship. Perfect for reading over a weekend! This is a great book for anyone but especially for readers who do not want to deal with heavy subject matter or graphic scenes. This book is charming and engaging.
This book is part of a series and I would recommend reading it first, although I read it out of order and did not mid it one bit!
