*Inspired by true events*
(Characters are a work of fiction)
When you close your eyes and open them again you expect to see the world as it was a fraction of a second ago. Maybe a slight change from a passing breeze, but you are still in the same place, unmoving and unchanged.
You don’t expect to be somewhere else where the faces are unfamiliar. Where you are unfamiliar. 
With one blink I had no family, no home, no name, and no past. I was alone, until I met the Reilly brothers. They gave me purpose again.
A reason to trust. A reason to love. A reason to rebuild a life full of forgotten memories. Together, they would try to rewrite my history.

Review

She awakens from a nightmare that seems so real and familiar, but finds herself in a hospital with no memory of her name or why she tried to kill herself. She meets a volunteer named Grady who rescues her from being sent to a women’s shelter – homeless, alone, and without her identity. Why would he help her?

Then there was Brandt, Grady’s brother, whom she found herself attracted to. Two brothers who were helpful and had experienced a tragic loss. Her name is Freckles because she has dissociative amnesia and doesn’t remember her name. I found this to be intriguing and drew me in to want to know more. She’s 23 with a whole life ahead, but missing her past.

Grady’s loss and his tears were heartbreaking. The brothers were a mystery unto themselves. So kind, yet full of pain. How did they fit in to her story? A friend’s sister remembered meeting her at a party, but couldn’t remember her name. Teasers. Memories returning and teasing her with scenes that were incomplete. Until almost halfway through, she remembers it all. And what she had tried to escape had to be faced and mourned. And that she was dealing with PTSD and depression.

The author did a great job unfolding the story from Freckles’ POV as to how crushing it is for to regain her memory after her suicide attempt and faced what caused her to want to die. I never thought about those tragic events outside of the headlines and social media posts. This book asks who the survivors are, who did they lose, and how could they possibly find the will to survive such losses. Instead of being a downer, the book offers hope in the face of loss and true love never dies.

Note: I had originally read the original version of this, Forgotten Treasures, and I had been enthralled by it. Reading a modified version was interesting and no less absorbing. I received an ARC (advance reader copy) for review purposes. This is my honest review. I also 1-clicked a copy.

Author Bio
I have always been drawn to words. They have this magic to touch my soul when I need it the most, whether through reading or writing. My love for writing started as most little girl’s with a diary. It evolved into a big girl journal and then transformed into a notebook of poetry during the dark days of high school. I followed my dream to USC (University of Southern California) to study theatre, creative writing, and screenwriting. Finally, I understood how to take the stories in my head and commit them to paper. I was fortunate enough to sell my first professional script during college and have
been writing ever since. 
In 2013 I took to self-publishing. I realized quickly that my passion resonated across many genres, so currently I have published young adult, fantasy, paranormal, dystopian, new adult, and women’s fiction. With both of my kids in school full-time now I am able to immerse myself in my passion more and
when I’m not writing I’m enjoying the short time I have with my babies and my husband.
