A FEW LINES FROM DARE TO REMEMBER
She remembered the first part of the evening well enough: the after-work crowd spilling onto the pavement outside the pub, the hum of voices, the smell of beer. They had sat by the open door where it was cool.
They were joined by the usual gang in ones and twos and by the time Fergus turned up there were no seats left. ‘move up,’ he said, squeezing onto the end of the bench next to Lisa. ‘ Give me some space.’ As he sat down she caught a whiff of whisky mingled with a strange, earthy smell she couldn’t identify. Sweat glistened on his forehead.
|If it wasn't for Christmas, new year and my birthday this book would have never been laid down until I had finished it from cover to cover.|
Lisa and Ali were just two young women. Enjoying life. Kicking back and having fun until......

Bit by bit things unfold.

Her day to day life moves on at a slow pace. She has purpose in seeing to her neighbor, walking the dog and now even adopting the dog, her friend, her companion.
She meets Jessica one day. Another friendship slowly blooms although Lisa wasn't eager to let that happen.
Night times though we're different, flashbacks.
Disturbing images and thoughts yet Lisa can't remember what it is she needs to remember.
Why is she feeling like this.
Her therapist is great. suggestions are made yet Lisa cannot always fulfill them.
I could hardly pull myself away from this fabulous read that kept my interest from page one to the end.
The characters were well grounded in my mind. I hung on every word, every sentence.
Fabulous authors talent to clear my head of everything around me and keep me focused on this story.
Great plot, great conclusion
