Synopsis

Thanks for the Memories by Cecelia Ahern

Joyce Conway remembers things she shouldn't. She knows about tiny cobbled streets in Paris, which she has never visited. And every night she dreams about an unknown little girl with blonde hair. Justin Hitchcock is divorced, lonely and restless. He arrives in Dublin to give a lecture on art and meets an attractive doctor, who persuades him to donate blood. It's the first thing to come straight from his heart in a long time. When Joyce leaves hospital after a terrible accident, with her life and her marriage in pieces, she moves back in with her elderly father. All the while, a strong sense of déjà vu is overwhelming her and she can't figure out why … Cecelia Ahern: making the everyday magical.

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

At Lovereading there are fabulous books available in every genre, with great reviews to help you pick the right book for you.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.
