The Memory by Lucy Dawson
Audio book read by Clare Corbett


A haunting domestic drama about families and secrets.
“She’ll never forget…..I’ll never forgive. People always notice my daughter, Isobel. How could they not? Incredibly beautiful….until she speaks.”

An unsettling, little-girl voice, exactly like a childs, but from the mouth of a full grown woman. Izzie might look grown up, but inside she’s trapped. Caught in the day it happened…the day that broke her from within. .

“Our family fell apart that day, and we never could pick up the pieces.”


My Thoughts

This book is described as an “unputdownable psychological thriller.” As a mystery I really enjoyed it, but to me it was not a psychological thriller. There wasn’t enough suspense for that in my opinion. To say that there is a supernatural theme to this story, doesn’t give anything away, but it does become a bit creepy at time. The story had many twists and turns, and unforeseen things happening which lead to an unexpected ending that I didn’t see coming. In my opinion this book is a great mystery with an inventive plot.

Audiobook – the narrator was able to portray the eeriness in this story where it was necessary. It didn’t lose anything at all in this format.

Star Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
