Boring Aug 4, 2008
I must have been reading a different book than all of these other people who rated it. I can't say that I should have expected much because I got it for like $3 at the bargains section at Books-a-million. It left SOOO much to be desired!!! I could hardly even get through it, but I'm not one to give up on a book... I wish I had.
A Christian tale on what happens when two childhood sweethearts reconnect years after being separated by well-meaning parents. The lure of a long-ago love who knew us before all the adult masks took hold is a potent exliir to many. Another love story to indulge.... of that love from back in the day ... who could still make your heart beat even after the passage of several years.
A lovely book May 10, 2006
I truly enjoyed this book.
It centers around Sam Tibbits, a bachelor pastor who can't seem to forget the childhood sweetheart with whom he's lost contact. As problems swirl in his pastoral and personal life, he decides to take his troubled nephew and make his way back to the quaint Oregon seaside village where he spent his childhood summers...only to find that his childhood sweetheart has also returned.
There are complications, of course. And how Sam (who is a very likable protagonist) deals with them is both absorbing and faith-affirming.
And I love Deborah Bedford's writing. It's lovely and evocative, and makes you feel the wet sand squishing between your toes and hear the cry of the sea-gulls.
Unforgettable romance Apr 5, 2006
A beautiful romance story set on the gorgeous Oregon coast, Deborah Bedford's novel Remember Me tells the tale of first love, acceptance, and moving on. Sam Tibbits is a small-town pastor, questioning God's calling in his life. In a desperate attempt to reclaim the world he once knew, Sam travels to the beautiful Oregon coast he visited each summer of his youth, only to find memories of his first love. Bedford tells a beautiful tale of love, life, and God.
The author does an excellent job of incorporating past events of Sam and Aubrey's history with the lives they currently lead. However, there is little involvement between the two characters. Sam Tibbits, while taking his sabbatical on the shores of Oregon, finds not only himself and his true calling, but his first love as well. Sam is a very strong character and very much a man of God. Aubrey, however, seems to be lacking in development as a character. She does not play a very large role in the story, although one might assume she would.
Remember Me is an unforgettable tale, nevertheless. It's a story of God and love, and the choices people are forced to make in life. The ending leaves the reader with a sense of peace, having learned that we may not always get what we want, but it's only because God is holding something better for us. For those who believe in love and second chances, Remember Me, is a wonderful novel. - Emily Day, Christian Book Previews.com
Weak in spots, but great writing Apr 2, 2006
Deborah Bedford's Remember Me doesn't stand quite as tall in the department of Christian fiction, but I love her lyrical writing style. Her world is a bit more perfect, most people are beautiful, or at least rarely are they truly unattractive. Remember Me is the story of Pastor Sam Tibbits trying to find something he lost years ago and finds that while sometimes we can go back, God often has better things for us if we move forward to His plan. Bedford's descriptions are lovely and breathtaking, and the depth of emotion in her characters are real. Aubrey comes across as the strongest most well-rounded character so when she has a change of heart toward the end of the novel, I felt like I had missed a chapter. The ending is not the obvious one, but it felt slightly forced. The funeral scenes and final scenes at the church with Sam are very moving. For Bedford's best book, read If I Had You, this one is worth a read, but it won't stick with you when it's done.
