Book Review: The Memory Thief - Emily Colin

The Memory Thief
When Madeleine Kimble's husband Aiden dies in a mountain climbing accident, Maddie can only think of his earnest promise to return to her and their young son.  Aiden's best friend J.C. feels great remorse over his inability to save him, but J.C.'s grief is also seasoned with the guilt of loving Maddie through the years.  Meanwhile, across the country another young man wakes up in a hospital and finds that his memories have been wiped clean, and replaced with haunting dreams of a beautiful woman and a five year old boy whom he feels driven to find.  What Nicholas Sullivan discovers upon his journey is utterly unexpected--and it will change all of their lives, especially Maddie's.

3/5 stars (really like it)
This story is told from 3 points of views, Maddie's, Aiden's and Nicholas.  Through these views you learn about how Maddie and Aiden met, fell in love and got married.  Nicholas is a blank slate and relies on his friends and girlfriend to tell him about himself.  Although he is driven to find Maddie.  The story did have a supernatural thing in it but it was written so well.  I love how the stories all connect and make total sense in the end.  Overall I really enjoyed this story.
