Praise for "The House of Memories"
"A suspenseful, deeply emotional story...a celebration of the power of family and connection to heal and inspire hope. An unforgettable treat."--"New York Times" bestselling author Susan Wiggs
"Beautifully composed of equal parts soul and wit...Its heart is huge, its pulse palpable, and its narrators irresistible. I read it voraciously."--Erika Marks, author of "It Comes in Waves"
"Travel and family often provoke enough anxiety, each on their own; combined, they can drive you over the edge. Monica McInerney's laugh-inducing--and refreshingly honest--novel is the perfect antidote to both."--Oprah.com
"In this perfect book-club read, a confessional letter (think: an affair exposed, kid problems) accidentally gets emailed to a woman's entire contact list."--Redbook

"Readers who enjoy multicharacter, drama-laden family stories like those of Susan Wiggs or Maeve Binchy will find this episodic tale engaging."--Library Journal
