Things Remembered: A NovelThings Remembered: A Novel by Georgia Bockoven
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Karla Esterbrook finds that in order to move forward on must face the past. Her past consists of being the oldest of three girls that suddenly lost their parents and were shipped between family until finally going to their maternal grandmother Anna, of which she has a very complicated relationship with, she has an ex husband that has left her in debt and a store she always dreamt of owning. Karla finds herself being in charge of preparing the estate with Anna and start settling all the affairs. Misunderstandings, miscommunications, and the walls that were built long ago come up, but soon as Karla opens her heart to listen she is able to open her heart to love - hopefully it isn't too late to make up for all the years wasted.
I loved this book. The complicated story of female relationships, the family ties that bind us, the gift of love through the generations, traditions, the gift of forgiveness - especially for yourself. So many themes and this is the book that is PERFECT to share with your sister, mother, grandmother, cousin. A great beach read, good for discussion, but mainly for that feel good feeling for the women in your life and how strong their importance lingers.
