The Memory Jar by Tricia Goyer ~ Litfuse Blog Tour & Review

The Memory Jar (Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors, #1)
My Review: An engaging Amish tale of moving past tragedy.

There was something about the setting in this tale that was so charming, I and loved the originality of it. The characters were very likable and easy to connect to from the very start. Even though Ms. Goyer has other Amish books I have never read any, but I did really like her book about the Titanic, By the Light of the Silvery Moon, and I immensely enjoyed this story.

Jathan, I thought was really likable, and the perfect person to help Sarah move on from a past she couldn't change. He was so kind, with a quirk of humor and he didn't know exactily what he wanted but he had a great start and a direction.

To me this book was really likable because it had a sweet romance, but also a more serious side with Sarah still healing from a past tragedy.

This was an engaging and likable read, with a very nice balance to it so it wasn't light and airy, but it wasn't over bearingly heavy either. In other words just perfect!

This is definitely a book that I would happily recommend, even to readers that might no think that Amish is their thing. It was a highly enjoyable read, with great faith elements, and messages of inspiration.

I received this book from the publisher through Litfuse in return for an honest review. Thank you!
