Overview

A Mother's Love...Haunted By Ghosts Of Terrors Past...
Menley Nichols as never stopped blaming herself for the accidental death of her two-year old son, a tragedy that strained her marriage and her sanity. When she and her husband Adam, a high-profile attorney, are blessed with a beautiful new baby daughter, they dedicate themselves to rebuilding their lives together---unaware that someone in their midst has a very different agenda for them.
Yearning to return to his Cape Cod roots for a late summer respite, Adam moves his family into Remember House, an 18th-century sea captain's house as legendary as it is picturesque. But the Nichols are immediately drawn into a dark and threatening web of events that disrupt the seemingly peaceful seaside town. As mysterious incidents amass into a cloud of menace, Menley must soon confront the shadows of the past...and the mounting fear for her beloved daughter's life...

Read an Excerpt

By 9 P.M. the storm had broken with full force, and a stiff wind was sending powerful waves crashing against the eastern shore of Cape Cod. We're going to get more than a touch of the nor'easter, Menley thought as she reached over the sink to close the window. It might actually be fun, she thought, in an effort to reassure herself. The Cape airports were closed, so Adam had rented a car to drive from Boston. He should be home soon. There was plenty of food on hand. She had stocked up on candles, just in case the electricity went out, although if she was right about what she was beginning to suspect, the thought of being in this house with only candlelight was frightening.

She switched on the radio, twisted the dial and found the Chatham station that played forties music. She raised an eyebrow in surprise as the Benny Goodman orchestra went into the opening notes of "Remember."

A particularly appropriate song when you're living in a place called Remember House, she thought. Pushing aside the inclination to flip the dial again, she picked up a serrated knife and began to slice tomatoes for a salad. When he phoned, Adam told her he hadn't had time to eat. "But you forgot to remember," the vocalist warbled.

The unique sound that the wind made when it rushed past the house was starting again. Perched high on the embankment over the churning water, the house became a kind of bellows in a wind storm, and the whooshing sound it emitted had the effect of a distant voice calling out "Remember, Remember..." The legend was that over the decades that peculiarity had given the house its name.

Menley shivered as she reached for the celery. Adam will be here soon, she promised herself. He'd have a glass of wine while she made some pasta.

There was a sudden noise. What was that? Had a door blown open? Or a window? Something was wrong.

She snapped off the radio. The baby! Was she crying? Was that a cry or a muffed, gagging sound? Menley hurried to the counter, grabbed the monitor and held it to her ear. Another choking gasp and then nothing. The baby was choking!

She rushed from the kitchen into the foyer, toward the staircase. The delicate fan-shaped window over the front door sent gray and purple shadows along the wide-plank floor.

Her feet barely touched the stairs as she raced to the second floor and down the hall. An instant later she was at the door of the nursery. There was no sound coming from the crib. "Hannah, Hannah," she cried.

Hannah was lying on her stomach, her arms outstretched, her body motionless. Frantically, Menley leaned down, turning the baby as she picked her up. Then her eyes widened in horror.

The china head of an antique doll rested against her hand. A painted face stared back at her.

Menley tried to scream, but no sound came from her lips. And then from behind her a voice whispered,

"I'm sorry, Menley. It's all over."

I love Mary Higgins Clark's books, and have read them all. However, Remember Me stands out as my absolute personal favorite. It has all my favorite things: the ocean, local legends, history, and of course, a great plot! I've read it countless times and I never get tired of it. I also like it that the author always interweaves faith somehow, and never resorts to filthy language or gratuitous sex. Terrific job!

this is the first book i read from clark and it's a highly recommended specially if you're into suspense and mind-boggling mystery. at first few chapters it's really confusing and quite boring specially those times wherein you have to keep track of the characters and how, maybe, they'll be a very important person on the plot (and later on learn they were). what i really like on this story is the twist and of course the unknowing climax till ending of the story.

Engaging and intriguing. A very good story with an extremely suspenseful ending that will keep you on edge until the last page. Recommended reading for all Mary Higgins Clark fans.

This was the first Mary Higgins Clark book I had ever read. I was skeptical at first but since then I have re-read it at least a dozen times and moved on to other titles by the author. This book is without a doubt my favorite book of all time!

Definitely not one of my favorites from MHC, but a mediocre read. A lot of historical jargon intertwined with the plot, which I found distracting from the mystery of the plot. The element of surprise was not as vivid in this novel as it has been in others.

This was a great book! The plot was typical of a Clark book and i thought it had a really good story line. The timeless question of insanity was mentioned in the book making it a great suspense tale that will send shivers up your spine.

A decent book for a nine hour read. Predictable, but it held my interest.

A very good read. I have always liked Mary Higgins Clark's books, but I was very impressed with this one. A real page-turner...You can not figure out if she is going crazy or what ...

I am addicted to reading MHC! I've read 4 of her books in 2 weeks and I can't wait to read more. 'Remember Me' is suspenseful and it kept me guessing & interested the entire read!
