The Truth About Melody Browne

Lisa Jewell is one of my favorite writers, and this title was a very enjoyable read. Melody Browne has no memories of her life before 9 years old. After her parents’ house burned down, the trauma of the event helped to suppress those recollections. Now she is 33, with a son who is turning 18. After a brief encounter with a hypnotist, she passes out, and, following that, slowly begins to experience scattered memories and snapshots of the past. Little by little, Melody begins to follow the paths that her memories lead her on, embarking on a journey of self discovery, as she realizes what she experienced in her early childhood years. Ms. Jewell has a deft way of weaving relationships together, as she builds her characterizations and the plot. I definitely recommend this title!
