Take a step back into the distant past -- or even the more recent past -- as you browse our FFF corner for August. Historical fiction places you in a specific time period and lets your imagination wonder "what if...?" Follow the author as the protagonist's story weaves through real events. Who knows, it may even spark an interest for more research of the actual events that affected modern society.

THE MEMORY GARDEN by M. Rickert
It has been forty years since three once close friends have seen each other. Their separation is the result of a secret tragedy resulting in the death of their fourth best friend. The fact that the women are witches is really beside the point. I trudged through the first half of this novel, but when the characters finally came together to rectify and confront their past, the book suddenly became a story of warmth and heart. I’m not sure if I can recommend it, but at the end I did feel satisfied.
