This wasn’t how it was supposed to be….

They met at a wedding, Todd the only man wearing jeans, Jessica the beauty with a troubled background. Settled into married life after falling in love, they have so many things left to do in life. They think they have so much time… until Jessica and Todd’s average married life comes to a halt on a snowy back road. When their truck careens down an embankment, they find themselves in a life-or-death situation. With rescue seeming impossible, they cling to the only hope they have left: their love for each other.
 
As they fight for survival, their connection carries them through the biggest challenge of their lives. Memories and regrets swirl around the couple as they finally take a moment to reflect on what they’re doing in life.
 
There’s one big, icy question that haunts them, though: Is this where their story will end?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Remember When is probably one of the most heartfelt stories that I’ve ever read. Already a fan of Lindsay Detwiler’s, I was equally eager and nervous to read this. The premise promises for a nostalgic story, and nostalgia can be both good and bad. We do get bit of both as Jessica and Todd reflect on the ups and down an their marriage, events that might have ripped them a part and also ones that brought them closer to each other. Sometimes they were one in the same.

Lindsay’s writing is so beautiful and this is a well plotted story. There’s a perfect balance of the present and the past. In Jessica and Todd Lindsay creates a couple that I quickly became fond of, I felt invested in their safety and their future. This is a story that explores the intimacy of marriage, of a relationship that’s been forged by a unique pull between two people. I really enjoyed getting to know them ( and maybe getting a glimpse into the author’s story too).

There’s no way to escape the emotions that their story evokes. There are so many lines that stuck out to me and made me contemplative about what I’d be thinking or wanting to talk about if my husband and I were in the situation. That’s when you know you’ve connected with a story. When it makes you think about your own life and relationship.

“…she smiled, thinking about the beautiful moments they had together every single day, moments she wouldn’t take for granted if they got out of this mess. She was certain of it. It was funny, tragic how it took something like this to show you what mattered. ”

5 Stars and recommendation. This story was a journey through a relationship and one that will remind you to make everyday count, to try to make it beautiful and to focus on the positive.

A high school English teacher, an author, and a fan of anything pink and/or glittery, Lindsay’s the English teacher cliché; she love cats, reading, Shakespeare, and Poe.
She currently lives in her hometown with her husband, Chad (her junior high sweetheart); their cats, Arya, Amelia, Alice, and Bob; and their Mastiff, Henry.
Lindsay’s goal with her writing is to show the power of love and the beauty of life while also instilling a true sense of realism in her work. Some reviewers have noted that her books are not the “typical romance.” With her novels coming from a place of honesty, Lindsay examines the difficult questions, looks at the tough emotions, and paints the pictures that are sometimes difficult to look at. She wants her fiction to resonate with readers as realistic, poetic, and powerful. Lindsay wants women readers to be able to say, “I see myself in that novel.” She wants to speak to the modern woman’s experience while also bringing a twist of something new and exciting. Her aim is for readers to say, “That could happen,” or “I feel like the characters are real.” That’s how she knows she’s done her job.

Lindsay’s hope is that by becoming a published author, she can inspire some of her students and other aspiring writers to pursue their own passions. She wants them to see that any dream can be attained and publishing a novel isn’t out of the realm of possibility.
