For twenty-five years, Anne Mitchell was enslaved by what she called the "Boogeyman"-images from her lost childhood that appeared in the shadows behind her reflection in mirrors and wine glasses, haunted her dreams and attacked her in screaming night terrors. Fear of facing that secret held her hostage. Like a schoolyard bully, it twisted her arm behind her back and forced her to accept that her life began in the dirt beside a ditch when she was eleven years old. Then the monster shattered her career. And Anne saw him in her dying mother's eyes. With her last breath, Susan Mitchell begged for her daughter's forgiveness. She didn't mean for it to happen, she gasped, but she'll burn in hell for what she did all the same. What did her mother do? Anne has to know. So she has come home to a small Texas prairie town, to live with her crazy grandmother in the rambling old house where she grew up, to take her stand against the Boogeyman. But Anne isn't really prepared for how expensive remembering might be. The cost of her memories could very well be her sanity. She might even have to pay for her past with her life.… (mais)

m young woman returns to her childhood home hoping to recover her lost memories. What follows is a horrific tale of trauma and abuse. Well written, but very disturbing. I would caution survivors of abuse against reading it. ( )

I loved this story.....it really did keep you guessing right up to the end. I thought I had it all figured out until the last couple of chapters! Love a surprise ending! ( )

Like other reviewers I found this book incredibly sad but also funny in places and it was not without hope. After a bad childhood the main character does find happiness and goes on to live a fulfilling life, although her journey of discovery is heart wrenching. Lovely book with a little romance thrown in for good measure. ( )

Nine times out of ten when I try a new to me author with "must read" or "amazing" reviews I end up disappointed. The Memory Closet was the 1 in 10!

Annie has no memories prior to the car accident that killed her sister when she was 11. She has lived the past 25 knowing there is a Bogie man in those lost memories and now she has decided to free herself.

Unfortunately, the key to opening those memories is Bobo, Annie's grandmother, who is in the grip of dementia. As things are revealed it is hard to know what is real and what is distortion.

These were great characters and relationships. The pain as the truth comes out is intense. The ending is very satisfactory.

I hope to find more by this author! ( )

The Memory Closet started off as a fascinating tale of Annie a 36-year-old woman who moved back to live in her childhood home with her grandmother to take care of her after her mother died. When her mother died, her last words were "Annie I didn't mean to do it." Now Annie is determined to return to her childhood home and find those memories.

This tale is quite the psychological thriller as events unfold. Annie meets some of the children who are now adults from her past. Dusty has become the Sheriff of the town and he he has helped to fill in a few of the blanks. It's when the memories start to return on their own and hallucinations begin that Annie truly thinks she's going crazy.

There are so many twists and turns in the plot of this storyline that you will need to put your seatbelt on for the ride. It's a dark journey but there is hope if you hang on.

I enjoyed the way that Annie grew throughout the book in her journey of self-discovery and was able to work on a resolution of the issues that brought on the total amnesia of her childhood and integrate it with the woman she had grown up to be.

This was an excellent book. I would highly recommend it. I give it 5 stars out of 5.

Thank you to the author for providing a copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
