All a person needs to escape the bombed-out cities and tormenting thirst of NorCoast is a fifteen-minute Memory Visit. Seventeen-year-old Rain, however, is not looking for an escape—she needs answers. When flashbacks of her twin brother’s drowning start to overtake her life, she relives that horrible day via a laser probe straight to her brain’s hippocampus.
What she discovers in the Memory Visit is even worse than she thought. Her twin brother, Dal, was murdered, and she is a mark, one of the remarkable people who can alter the past through her memories. Using her newfound ability, Rain attempts to save her brother only to become a target of the assassins who killed him. Soon, she must decide whether rescuing a brother she barely knows in the past is worth risking her life and the lives of people she loves in the present.
The Memory Visit by Jenny Lynn Lambert
Can you imagine being able to journey back into a memory from your past, virtually reliving it, perhaps seeing things you missed the first time around?? Rain wanted more than to revisit one of the most horrendous days of her childhood, she wanted the truth of what happened the day her brother drowned. The flashbacks she had been having were becoming too vivid, too bizarre and something just burrowed into her mind that what she vaguely remembers isn’t real…will her quest for the truth drive her insane? Will it uncover hidden truths? Will those truths set her free or will they make her a prisoner of guilt and conscience?
Talk about a dystopian hell! THE MEMORY VISIT by Jenny Lynn Lambert is as magnetic as it is chilling as one determined young woman discovers more than she bargained for when she insists on revisiting the past.
Ms. Lambert has written a futuristic tale that will have readers wondering if being able to do virtual visits to the past is such a great idea. Then again, perhaps it could be a huge eye-opener in a world where people are losing the ability to value memories or to question what really happened.
Rather dark, edgy and completely entertaining, this one has that “what if” value-what if you changed history, could you live with the present you changed?
