Book Summary from Amazon:
Kristen Tyverson lives the ideal life. Happily married, with three children, she has worked her way to becoming one of the most successful reporters in the country. While reporting on conditions in Afghanistan, she is severely injured during a bombing. For months, she is presumed dead, and her family mourns her passing, unaware that she has survived. When she is found alive, it is revealed that she has no recollection of the past 10 years of her life. Her husband, her children, her career: all a mystery to her. Grateful to have his wife back and determined to hold their family together, Mark Tyverson makes it his mission to win his wife’s heart again — regardless of whether she remembers him or not. Remember Me is a story that traces the hard work of piecing back a life torn apart by memory loss. It explores the hardship both the victim faces as well as those around her, robbed of the person they know when she is robbed of the memories she had. Will Kristen, Mark, and their three children be able to rise to the challenge?

My review in 2014:
I wasn’t sure about Remember Me when I first read the description of the book, as to me the “lost memories” books have been overdone. But Michelle Onuorah had a sale on Remember Me for .99, so I figured “why not?” and got the book. (I had LOVED Type N and Taking Names. I knew it is a different type of book from those.)
I am glad I did buy Remember Me as I enjoyed it! It is all about love; not just romantic but family love. I expected more romantic love based on the cover, but still enjoyed the book.
The beginning is heartbreaking: What Mark goes through thinking Kristen passed away, when in fact, we as the reader know she is alive! I am just a few years younger than Kristen so I identified with her when she realized how much time in her life she lost. I put myself in her position thinking back to the year 2003 and how much of my life I would have lost. I actually put the book down and thought about that for a while.
I enjoyed the faith that Mark and Kristen have in the book. Michelle Onuorah is a proclaimed Christian and wrote that disclaimer in the description of the book. I look forward to reading more from Michelle Onuorah in the future!
