More Than We Remember by Christina Suzann Nelson

More Than We RememberABOUT THE BOOK

One night changes everything for three women. . . .

When Addison Killbourn's husband is involved in a car accident that leaves a woman dead, her perfectly constructed life crumbles apart. With her husband's memory of that night gone and the revelation of a potentially life-altering secret, Addison has to reevaluate all she thought she knew.

Emilia Cruz is a deputy bearing a heavy burden far beyond the weight of her job. Her husband is no longer the man she married, and Emilia's determined to prevent others from facing the same hardship. When she's called to the scene of an accident pointing to everything she's fighting against, she's determined to see justice for those wronged.

Brianne Demanno is hiding from reality. She was thriving as a counselor, but when tragedy struck a beloved client, she lost faith in herself and her purpose. When her neighbors, the Killbourns, are thrown into crisis, Brianne's solitary life is disrupted and she finds herself needed in a way she hasn't been in a while.

As the lives of these women intersect, they can no longer dwell in the memory of who they've been. Can they rise from the wreck of the worst moments of their lives to become who they were meant to be?


As I read this book I had to put it down several times. It wasn't that I was bored, it was because I had to process the deep emotions within the pages. More Than We Remember shares the story of three women who are very different until...one fatal car accident changes their lives forever. These three women are suddenly connected through a common tragedy that plunges them all into darkness and they must each find their own way to climb out of that darkness. Despair, heartache, and grief come to visit each of them, and because they have families, it branches out to touch each and every member. Raising teenage children, addiction to pain meds, and serious medical issues all add to this story plot but a key component is memory...the memories we recall and those that we forget.

As dark as it may seem at times, there is always a way to the light and More Than We Remember reminds us that we are never truly alone. It is when Addison, Brianne, and Emilia believe that nothing can get any worse that their lives begin to turn around. "This was where the healing could begin. Not in the secrets and regrets, but in the moving forward, trusting, and truth."

Author Christina Suzann Nelson has created some memorable characters and placed them in a powerful story of love, hope, and faith. It is wonderful contemporary Christian fiction and you won't soon forget More Than We Remember.

I received a copy of this book from Bethany House. There was no obligation for a positive review and I am sharing my honest thoughts.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
