Book Review: Remembrance by Michelle Madow

Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from Regency Era, England ... but she doesn't know it yet.

Then Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie's high school at the beginning of the year, and she feels a connection to him, almost like she knows him. She can't stop thinking about him, but whenever she tries talking with him about the mysteries behind her feelings, he makes it clear that he wants nothing to do with her. Reaching him is even more difficult because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has started to become full of himself after being elected co-captain of the varsity soccer team, and her flirtatious best friend Chelsea starts dating Drew soon after his arrival. So why can't she get him out of her mind?

Even though Lizzie knows she should let go of her fascination with Drew, fighting fate isn't going to be easy.

“Remembrance” by Michelle Madow has a way of captivating the reader right away. Drew is a new student at Lizzie’s school. Even though there seems to be something familiar about Drew, she can’t quite seem to put her finger on it. As Drew and Lizzie decided to do more together or when they were around each other memories would trigger. Lizzie went from being a terrible French student to a fluent French student. Memories were coming back that seemed like dreams until Lizzie knew that she had lived a life before her previous one.

Drew recognizes Lizzie right away but he doesn’t want her to remember everything because he wants to change history. Drew is worried that if Lizzie remembers everything than the past is going to repeat itself and then he will lose Lizzie all over again. Lizzie is falling for Drew but she is trying to figure out what she wants since she is currently in a relationship.

I think this was a great start for a debut novel. This is my second read though; I just realized I hadn’t reviewed the story. “Remembrance” is definitely a cute little love story that mixes between modern day and Victorian England. I thought the characters were pretty well developed and the plot was good. I think the story progressed a little slowly but not too slow because I still wanted to continue reading. If you want something short and fun to read check out “Remembrance” because I believe all readers will enjoy this cute short read.

I give "Remembrance" four out of five bookshelves.
