Giveaway at Loraine Nunley's website: The Memory of You by Catherine West #BookGiveaway @lorainenunley

Today’s book giveaway is for the inspirational contemporary book The Memory of You by Catherine West.

What is this book about?

When Natalie Mitchell learns her beloved grandfather has had a heart attack, she returns to their family-owned winery in Sonoma, something she never intended to do. She’s avoided her grandparents’ sprawling home and all its memories since the summer her sister died — the awful summer Natalie’s nightmares began. But the winery is failing, and Natalie’s father wants her to shut it down. As the majority shareholder, she has the power to do so.

And Natalie never says no to her father.

Tanner Collins, the vintner on Maoilios, is trying to salvage a bad season and put the Mitchell family’s winery back in business. When Natalie shows up, Tanner sees his future about to be crushed. He knows Natalie intends to close the gates, and he’s determined to convince her otherwise. But the Natalie he remembers from childhood is long gone, and he’s not so sure he likes the woman she’s become. Still, the haunted look she wears hints at secrets he wants to unearth. He soon discovers that on the night her sister died, the real Natalie died too. And Tanner must do whatever it takes to resurrect her.

But finding freedom from the past means facing it. For both of them.

    1. It’s so funny how the passage of time changes from when we are kids. Thanks for sharing that Linda. πŸ™‚

  2. Going on vacation to visit family in Alberta. We always had so much fun visiting our cousins on their farm and then driving up to Banff and Lake Louise.

  3. this sounds like a fantastic story. one of my favorite childhood memories is sitting with my mom being taught how to sew. and then sitting with her sewing. later it became quilting together.

    1. That is so sweet Lori. My mom taught me to crochet and those are some great memories. Thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚

  4. So many memories, how to pick just one? I think it would be Christmas. I’m so glad to have lived before the electronic age where excitement was all around Christmas morning especially getting outside to see what all everyone got – to ride the bikes, use the roller skates, play with our Barbie’s together.

    I was an Army brat where those around us changed regularly so you treasured friends while you could. I can remember after an appropriate time, we all went around to each other’s homes to see what presents we got and to explore the goody tables set out with holiday treats. Afterwards, the kids would all go out to play with their new toys and share them willingly with others while our parents visited and drank coffee.

    My Dad’s birthday was New Year’s Eve, so we would forego a big Christmas dinner in favor of stacked high sandwiches, chips and dip along with the holiday goodies spread out so there was more time to play and enjoy what Santa brought. Our big celebration meal with the turkey, dressing and ham along with holiday dessert was left for Dad’s big day which always made him feel extra special.

    1. Those sounds like amazing memories Kay. I’m getting hungry just thinking about your meals. Thanks so much for sharing that with us. πŸ™‚

  5. I grew up in a small town, and my best friend lived just a block or so away. We used to love to ride our bikes together especially in the summertime. Long bike rides on the country roads outside of town are a special memory to me.

    1. Oh my goodness Patty, you just reminded me of some great bike riding memories too. Thanks for sharing that with us. πŸ™‚

  6. One of my best memories of childhood was our trip to Alaska. We drove through Canada and took the Al-Can Highway. Alaska is still one of my favorites states.

    1. Wow Danielle. That sounds awesome. I have some good memories of family trips too. Thank you for sharing yours with us. πŸ™‚

  7. For me, it’s all the great memories of spending my summer days with my grandma! When I got old enough, my parents let me ride my bike to her house since we didn’t live that far away. Some of my favorite memories are helping her plant her flowers and putting corn up on the squirrel feeders & filling the bird feeders. She instilled the love of bird watching in me πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the giveaway chance Loraine! You mentioned in your newsletter about posting a few marriage posts in August, and I’d love to know who’s getting married. πŸ™‚

    1. Those sound like really wonderful memories Trixi. Thank you for sharing it with us. πŸ™‚

      I did mention marriage posts. They are not about anyone who is getting married but those who are currently married. It is my series on the ‘ABCs of Remarriage’. And for any who want to catch up on them, click on the marriage tab at the top of the website. πŸ˜‰

  8. My best memory of childhood was baking bread and having tea parties with my grandmother.

  10. So many good memories, but probably Christmas celebrations come to mind first. They were always exciting, joyful and crazy with 8 children in the family πŸ™‚

  11. One of my favorite childhood memories was our dad taking us to a lake to swim.There were 10 of us,so my dad could only take some of us each time.

    1. Another large family! I love that your dad made time for each of you Rose. Thank you for sharing that. πŸ™‚

  12. So many! you don’t realize how good your childhood is until you learn of the horrors some kids have had to live through. I grew up on a farm and had to work hard to help out but those chores are what made me who I am today. My parents had 7 kids and my mother’s sister had 8 and our families would get together almost every Sunday for years. We had such fun times together, playing Auntie, Auntie over, Kick the can, Ten steps around the House, No Bears out Tonight, etc. We didn’t have much but we could sure have fun together.

    1. Wonderful! I just love the idea of regular family get togethers. Thank you for sharing your family with us Arletta. πŸ™‚

  13. My favorite childhood memory is when my parents took me to Disney World at 5 years old.

  14. Spending time with my grandfather during the Summer. He was a joy to be with.

  15. Sorry that I didn’t read the question before commenting! Some of the best memories of my childhood were visiting my grandparent’s ranch in MT, riding horses, eating my Grandma’s good cooking, and playing with my cousins who live and visited there.

  16. I loved summer in my childhood home. I loved being outside – playing in the yard, building waterfalls and dams in the creek, working in the vegetable garden and the watermelon patch and catching fireflies at night. They are beautiful, magical memories.

  17. I have so many treasured memories, from vacations taken, to playing games as a family, to Christmas mornings spent, etc. I think more than anything perhaps was just the small, every day moments, like eating dinners together, or dancing to records and trying not to skip them, or lining up before bedtime when we were very, very young and hugging each other goodnight!
