I had heard alot of talk about Kim Edwards’ book, The Memory Keeper’s Daughter while traveling around the forums on Goodreads. I decided to check out the book for myself and see if it looked interesting to me. In the meantime I found a collection of short stories by her called The Secrets of the Fire King. These looked intriguing and I thought they might be a good introduction to her writing. I purchased the book and brought it home. As usual, my TBR grows faster than I can read, so book has been on my shelf for awhile. I recently picked it up and began reading. I was completely blown away by the first story. I paused a bit letting the words sink in and thinking about the tale. I soon read the next story and was again blown away. Each story thus far has been amazing. Her writing is extraordinary and I am in love. I can’t wait to read the next story and yet, I want to savor each one and not read too quickly. I don’t want the book to end. I haven’t read The Memory Keeper’s Daughter just yet, but I have the book and am looking forward to it. I am glad to have it waiting for me when I do finish the collection of short stories. This author and her writing have quickly moved to top of my list of faves. I’ll be rereading her work for years to come!
