Book Blurb

An emotionally charged and captivating novel about the complexities of female friendship and motherhood

Lizzie Thomson has landed her first job as a music teacher, and after a whirlwind romance with Markus, the newlywed couple move into a beautiful new home in the outskirts of Edinburgh.

Lizzie quickly befriends their neighbour Morag, an elderly, resourceful yet lonely widow, whose own children rarely visit her. Everything seems perfect in Lizzie’s life until she finds out she is pregnant and her relationship with both Morag and Markus change beyond her control. 

Can Lizzie really trust Morag and why is Markus keeping secrets from her?

In The Memories We Bury the author explores the dangerous bonds we can create with strangers and how past memories can cast long shadows over the present.

Wow what a read this is! This is my first book from H.A. Leuschel  and it will most definitely not be my last! If you enjoy a book that is intense, compelling, powerful, riveting, gripping, haunting and thought provoking, then this is definitely the book for you! 

Full of suspense, H.A. Leuschel has delivered a very chilling tale that deals with many themes, but fundamentality focuses on, as the blurb states, “complexities of female friendship and motherhood” It  is a dark and interesting take on human behaviour and manipulation. 

The chapters alternate between the main protagonists, Lizzie and Morag’s perspective’s which gives the reader a more personal insight into each of their characters. They are both complex and have so many layers to them, which makes them very unique in their own way. The expertise they have been created with really brings them to life throughout the pages.

What I also found very unique was H.A. Leuschel’s writing style and how she was able to control my emotions, which there were many. The one more than any of them though, was unease. All throughout this feeling just hovered around and just intensified more and more as the story progressed. 

I found the first half of the book to move at more of a slower pace as the scene is set, but it does gain a fair amount of momentum along the way for a more fast paced second half. I found it very hard to turn away from it then as I sped to the finish line! It really is a page turner and with a few surprises makes for a very enjoyable read.

The Memories We Bury is a twisty read that grabbed and held my attention immediately which is always a plus. I can be easily distracted when I read, but with this one it had me well and truly hooked. I throughly enjoyed this story and look forward to what H.A. Leuschel will give her readers next. It was a pleasure to read and review The Memories We Bury which I recommend.

This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play, Barnes & Noble & Waterstones if available. As I am from Australia, I am unable to add to Amazon UK.
