Publisher's Description

Thirteen years ago, Natalie lost a part of herself when her twin sister died. Will traveling back to the family winery finally put the memory to rest, or will it completely destroy her?

When Natalie Mitchell learns her beloved grandfather has had a heart attack, she’s forced to return to their family-owned winery in Sonoma, something she never intended to do. She’s avoided her grandparents’ sprawling home and all its memories since the summer her sister died—the awful summer Natalie’s nightmares began. But the winery is failing, and Natalie’s father wants her to shut it down. As the majority shareholder, she has the power to do so.

And Natalie never says no to her father.

Tanner Collins, the vintner on Maoilios, is trying to salvage a bad season and put the Mitchell family’s winery back in business. When Natalie shows up, Tanner sees his future about to be crushed. He knows Natalie intends to close the gates, and he's determined to convince her otherwise. But the Natalie he remembers from childhood is long gone, and he’s not so sure he likes the woman she’s become. Still, the haunted look she wears hints at secrets he wants to unearth. He soon discovers that on the night her sister died, the real Natalie died too. And Tanner must do whatever it takes to resurrect her.

But finding freedom from the past means facing it. For both of them.

    The kind of story that begs to be read aloud because it is so beautifully written. Exquisite both in prose and depth.

    West explores the realistic lives of characters caught up in the midst of dysfunctional families. And yet it isn't hopeless. It's angst-riddled and heart-wrenching in places for sure, but there's a strength and power in Natalie and Tanner's ability to overcome. Their struggles mirror our own. They discover truths that we must all come to understand -- like life is messy and that's okay. God isn't waiting for us to be perfect before we come to him. That secrets hold power only if we let them. And facing the past is hard but trying to ignore it is harder still.

    Natalie and Tanner are both dealing with some difficult issues and the last thing they need is romantic feelings to stir things up even more. Tanner in particular is pretty dead set against having anything to do with Natalie. But despite the constant surliness and his penchant to sulk, there is something very appealing about this self-made man who honors his family by trying to take on all their burdens. He's quick to make assumptions where Natalie is concerned and she's not shy about lashing back. Their scenes are charged with undercurrents of passion that stirs them into reacting in unexpected ways. A real roller-coaster of a romance, but realistically so. And with a sweet ache of tenderness that turned me to mush.

    Richly layered secondary stories make this a feast of a read. Decadent and delicious and impossible to resist. The Memory of You is the kind of novel that lives in your heart long after you've finished the last page. A celebration of life and love and finding yourself through the mercy of God's everlasting grace.

    The Memory of You

    By Catherine West

    For 13 years Natalie Mitchell has been living with the memory of her sister's death and trying to be what Nicole would have been. But Natalie isn't Nicole, she knows she can never become close to being the outgoing people person her twin sister was. And worse Natalie knows that she is a disappointment to her parents. On the brink of another breakdown, Natalie agrees to go to California, to her grandfather's home in the heart of Sonoma's wine country.

    Her father has demanded that Natalie start proceedings to shut down Maoilios, the winery that her grandparents started. But returning to Maoilios may be the escape Natalie needs to recover and face her past.

    But Tanner Collins is determined to send Natalie back to New York as soon as possible. He knows she's there at her father's bidding to shut down Maoilios and destroy everything he has worked for. But Hal Mitchell has faith in his granddaughter and knows that if Natalie is given the chance that she'll fight for Maoilios and her family's legacy if only he can convince Tanner to trust Natalie.

    Tanner has his own issues revolving around his family and his guilt and as a result, he is an all around grump who is anything but helpful to Natalie's already fragile mental state. But when Natalie finds herself in need of help Tanner is the only one to whom she can turn.

    Can working together help Tanner and Natalie heal from the wounds of the past that have left a mark on their hearts?

    The Memory of You is a moving and touching story that explores the value of family and the power of secrets and guilt upon the heart and mind. I really liked Natalie from the first chapter. Tanner really needed a good shake with his major attitude - it might have knocked the chip he was carrying around on his shoulder off. It was interesting to see how each character reacted differently to a situation and how it shaped them and their future responses.

    I was provided a complimentary copy of this book by the Fiction Guild with no expectations of a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.

    What a beautifully written and completely captivating story! This contemporary romance novel simply dragged me into its pages and wouldn't let go! I really loved the main characters, Natalie and Tanner. They had some history together as children and young teens. Both had also experienced traumatic events in their pasts which influenced the way they reacted to present situations.

    The side stories and characters were extremely interesting, as was the heartbreaking look into the tragic accident that so impacted Natalie. The Memory of You was packed with interesting people, a beautiful setting, and a couple of side stories that were interwoven with the main one to create a book that I didn't want to set down. I loved it!

    I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

    Memory of You by Catherine West is a stunning book right through to its absolutely beautiful cover with its orange sky which I loved - but one must never judge a book by its cover they say, even if they are the initial doorway in.

    And much lurks behind that doorway - a feisty heroine who is forced to face her family demons by returning to her Grandfathers vineyard after he suffers a serious health scare. There she meets Tanner - her Grandfathers new protege who is working to drag the business kicking and screaming into the current century. They but heads immediately and it takes some effort of thawing to make them both see straight.

    I loved the setting - the characters and the gentle pacing of the story. This was the perfect treat to curl up with and simply enjoy its relaxed pace. It had just the right amount of romance and drama to keep me engaged and a few times I wanted to shake our two protagonists into realising what was staring them in the face.

    I would highly recommend Catherine Wests latest as a warm family story which will transport you to the spiralling vineyards and sun kissed grapes. Perfect reading.

    This is the second book I have read by Catherine. I loved the first one and couldn't wait to read this one. She has a unique way of writing a book that is easy to read yet deeply emotional. This book is no exception.

    Natalie is dealing with a lot of junk. She isn't too sure about God and I just kept wanting her to figure out that He is the one who can ultimately heal her of the wounds from her past.

    Tanner sure wasn't very nice to her at first but I love how they got drawn together and then it was like the pull was undeniable, even though they both tried to deny it.

    This book is just so rich and engaging, I didn't want to stop reading. If you are looking for something that will touch your heart this is a great one.

    A copy of this book was given to me through the BookLook Bloggers program. All opinions are my own.
