March Release By: M. S. Spencer Lapses of Memory March 15, 2017 The Plot: Sydney Bellek first meets Elian Davies in the 1950s on a Boeing 377 Stratocruiser when she is five and he is seven. They run into each other every few years after that, but while he knows from the start that she is his true love, she does not. Later, as rival journal- ists, they vie for scoops on international crises from the Iranian revolution to the Lebanese civil war. The handsome and intrepid Elian beats her out at every turn, even while keeping his love for her secret. Only after years of separation does she finally realize they are meant to be together, but this time, in a twist of fate, it is Elian whose memory of her is gone. Will he remember her before she loses heart, or will their new love be enough to replace the old one? Review ***** Marchelle at Gotromancereviews Wrote: “This is a very touch- ing story, and I was completely drawn in. The characters were vivid and real. I found my- self wanting to skip to the end to reassure myself it would all work out. That’s how invested I was in these characters.” http://gotromancereviews.blogspot.com/2014/07/lapses-of- memory-by-ms-spencer.html Reviews of the second edition are welcome. Biography: Although M. S.
