Review: Remember Me by Amaleen Ison

Sera isn’t living. She’s existing—barely. Bedbound by illness, she has no memory of life before the freezing barn she now calls home. A mournful song haunts her dreams and hints at a past not completely buried—one she’s desperate to uncover. Yet Father’s whirlwind visits to draw blood and administer medication don’t provide answers. He only confirms the one thing she already knows; she’s dying.
A lonely death without ever knowing her past seems inevitable until a sudden, mystifying return to health coincides with the arrival of a boy in the opposite out-building. The inextricable pull to the stranger, and the broken memories that storm her mind when he’s near, warn of a history quite different to any she could have imagined. If she’s to uncover the truth she craves, she’ll have to decide whether knowledge of the past is worth forfeiting her second chance at life.

My Review:

This book was very haunting and sad.  I haven't decided if the beginning was sadder then the end.  Sera has no memory before awakening in the barn.  All she knows her father, uncle, and a mother she vaguely hears her father talking about when he thinks she's asleep.  The story itself is amazing and unique.  I really enjoyed the premise and look forward to reading more from this author!!
