My Review of REMEMBRANCE by Michelle Madow
As soon as I saw the cover, I had to read REMEMBRANCE by Michelle Madow. The cover is one of the most beautiful covers I’ve ever seen and the story is just as gorgeous. The mask draws you in, but the words, characters and storyline keep you wanting more. I loved it! Madow has created a captivating romance between lovers across time with a unique twist on reincarnation and the fate of finding true love for the second time in another lifetime – even when it ended tragically the first time.
Inspired by Taylor Swift’s Love Story video, the protagonist, Lizzie, has been reincarnated from Regency Era, England but is unaware of her past life. She doesn’t understand why she feels so connected to the new guy, Drew, especially since she already has a boyfriend – who happens to be quite controlling. Readers will find Lizzie down-to-earth and relatable. She is very likeable and someone I would have loved to be friends with in high school. I rooted for Lizzie and Drew from the very first chapter, even when it appeared as if they’d never be together.
As for Drew – well, he is totally gorgeous, and not just on the outside. He struggles with his feelings for Lizzie and it shows through his actions. Whether he is doing everything to push her away, dating her best friend, or giving into his feelings, Drew is downright swoon-worthy and I can’t wait to read more about him and his past life.
I definitely recommend Madow’s debut novel to any age, pre-teen through adult. It is an amazing love story that will tug at your heart and keep you wondering what is going to happen next. It’s a must read. I look forward to delving deeper into Lizzie and Drew’s pasts, including the complications that test relationships, fate, life and even death, in the upcoming books in the TRANSCEND TIME Saga.
