In this powerful fiction debut, Therese Fowler combines the emotional resonance of Nicholas Sparks with the intense, true-to-life richness of Jodi Picoult to create a stunning and dramatic novel all her own.

Meg Powell and Carson McKay were raised side by side on their families’ farms, bonded by a love that only deepened. Everyone in their small rural community in northern Florida thought that Meg and Carson would always be together. But at twenty-one, Meg was presented with a marriage proposal she could not refuse, forever changing the course of her life.

Seventeen years later, Meg’s marriage has become routine, and she spends her time juggling the demands of her medical practice, the needs of her widowed father, and the whims of her rebellious teenage daughter, Savannah, who is confronting her burgeoning sexuality in a dangerous manner and pushing her mother away just when she needs her most. Then, after a long absence, Carson returns home to prepare for his wedding to a younger woman. As Carson struggles to determine where his heart and future lie, Meg makes a shocking discovery that will upset the balance of everyone around her.

Unfolding with warmth and passion, Therese Fowler’s vibrant and moving debut illuminates the possibility of second chances, the naïve choices of youth, the tensions within families, and the wondrous designs of fate. A searing yet redemptive novel, Souvenir is an unforgettable tale about the transforming power of love.

    " I can't believe all of the favorable reviews that this book has generated. I couldn't read past the first 75 or so pages. It all felt very Lifetime movie to me with plastic characters and a less than interesting storyline. I don't think she writes that well. I've lost interest in reading her debut effort and will be posting that book onto my bookshelf shortly. "

    " This was one of those books that I didn't want to end...but at the same time I could not stop reading it! I don't want to write too much and spoil it but I highly recommend it! "

    " The story line was fairly interesting, but it didn't stretch me at all. It was a pleasant, relaxing read. The main character, Meg, faces several challenges at once: her 16-year old daughter is getting distant and into a bit of trouble, her marriage is loveless, she finds out she has ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), and struggles with the decision to get back together with the love of her life after having married someone else so that his father's bank would forgive her parents' mortgage. I didn't feel for the characters very strongly, so it wasn't a downer. "
