Memory House Collection
By Bette Lee Crosby
Louise and Clay Palmer have the perfect life, or so Louise thought, until Clay tells her his health is in jeopardy because of the stress of his job. He wants to pack up and move to the house in Florida that his uncle bequeathed to him. He’s tired of his job, and he’s tired of shoveling snow. Clay wants to enjoy life.
Louise doesn’t want to move. Why would anyone want to leave their family, the perfect home they’ve lived in all these years, and their friends and move to a place where they don’t know anyone?
Louise tries to sabotage the sale of their home so that they have no choice but to stay. However, her efforts are in vain, and she and Clay pack up their belongings and move to Florida. The story follows their adjustments to a new life and the friendships they make.
Will Louise and Clay discover what matters most?
WHAT MATTERS MOST is a story of love, friendships and new beginnings.
.I read WHAT MATTERS MOST some time ago. It was the first of Crosby’s books I’ve read. Since then I’ve read several more, and like this one, I enjoyed all of them immensely. Crosby has a talent for telling a story in a way that you feel part of the cast of characters. It’s her gift for spinning a yarn that makes her characters and story come to life.
I recommend WHAT MATTERS MOST to all readers of fiction. No matter what genre a reader prefers, Crosby’s story will resonate with everyone. Like all of her books, I couldn’t put this one down.
USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby’s books are “Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances.” – Midwest Book Review
The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby’s writing is, “A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures.”
Samantha from Reader’s Favorite raves, “Crosby writes the type of book you can’t stop thinking about long after you put it down.”
“Storytelling is in my blood,” Crosby laughingly admits, “My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write.”
It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President’s Book Award Gold Medal, Reader’s Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer’s Choice Award.
