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. Download and start listening now!
