Overview
Memories Left Behind is an honest, thought-provoking and well crafted narrative about mid-lifers, women and men, who in spite of challenging circumstances, persevere and alter the outcome of their lives. It's early February and four members of the Lakeland High graduates of '89 receive invitations to attend a thirtieth class reunion in the last week of April. The event will present them an opportunity to reconnect with their closest friends from the past. This is a story of how two women never decoupled, and how they persevered through gut-wrenching adversity in their adult lives. It's also a story of how two men found a way to restore their friendship after three decades of self-imposed separation. The main characters come alive, are recognizable and ones the reader will care about and empathize with. A patchwork of intriguing supporting actors play a critical role in the novel. Each one lends credence to the plot line and a full measure of poignant human drama.
