Publisher Comments:

New York Times bestselling author Cecelia Ahern's charming new novel explores what happens when "what if" becomes a reality for two strangers whose lives are at a crossroads.

How can you know someone you've never met? That's the question haunting Joyce Conway these days. Recovering from a terrible accident and with her marriage in pieces, Joyce is suddenly plagued by an overwhelming sense of déjà vu that makes her feel as if the life she's living is not her own. During the day she has vivid memories of things she's never seen—such as cobblestoned Parisian streets she's never visited—and at night she dreams of a little girl she's sure she's never met. Joyce is convinced she's lost her mind . . . until a series of coincidences leads her on a journey to meet the one person who may hold the answer she needs.

Someone's life could be depending on you right now. . . . That's the pitch that finally persuades Justin Hitchcock to donate blood—the first thing to come straight from his heart in a long time.

Restless and lonely, Justin chased his ex-wife and daughter from Chicago to London, and now he's in Dublin, guest-lecturing to bored college students. When he receives a basket of muffins with a thank-you note attached, he's sure someone's playing a joke on him, but then the presents keep coming. Intrigued, Justin is determined to solve the mystery—a quest that will change his life forever.

Thanks for the Memories is a heartwarming story of hope, love, and second chances—Cecelia Ahern's most magical novel yet.

Review:

"Contrivance and a multitude of sitcom mixups drive Ahern's fifth novel. When Joyce Conway gets a blood transfusion after a tragic accident that caused her to miscarry, she strangely picks up the memories of her donor. Upon release from the hospital, she moves in with her father to try to cope with her impending divorce and the loss of her baby, but ends up instead on a wild goose chase after feeling a connection with a mysterious, smoldering stranger in a hair salon. Their relationship is obvious to the reader immediately, which makes the following several hundred pages a less than satisfying exercise in delaying the inevitable. Fans of Ahern's earlier work won't be disappointed with the fairy tale — like feeling, but readers not already in the fold might not stick around to the obvious conclusion." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Thanks for the Memories

When Joyce Conway, pregnant with her first child, falls down the stairs and loses her baby, she experiences unfathomable grief. After a transfusion to speed her recovery, amazing things began to happen to her. Her mind fills with knowledge previously unknown to her�"she now speaks Latin; she has extensive information about ancient architecture and the arts that she has never studied. She has reoccurring memories about a white-haired child and a chubby little boy. What was happening to her? Slowly, the story unwinds itself and leads her on a search through the streets and museums of London and Dublin and finally to a man who has had his own traumatic experience�"of sorts�"and who brings all the pieces together. A wonderful story I couldn’t stop reading.

I purchased this book online & frankly, was a bit turned-off by the cutesy cover. I had it a whole year before I even opened it. Then, the story line was a bit hokey & predictable--BUT--once I stopped being annoyed, I realized that I was still reading AND really enjoying myself! Caring about Joyce & her relationship with her father, her friends, & the mystery man. And laughing out loud! Ms. Ahern has a lovely warm Irish wit about her. This book is a gem.
