When a great hurt is done to us, we never recover until we forgive—even if it takes us more than one lifetime. This is no ordinary love story. Sarah Ferguson agrees. She'll tell you first about the nightmares. Not the usual sort of bad dreams, mind you. Hers are in-your-face real—like running to the bathroom to spit out the blood in her mouth real. After that, she's up the When a great hurt is done to us, we never recover until we forgive—even if it takes us more than one lifetime. This is no ordinary love story. Sarah Ferguson agrees. She'll tell you first about the nightmares. Not the usual sort of bad dreams, mind you. Hers are in-your-face real—like running to the bathroom to spit out the blood in her mouth real. After that, she's up the rest of the night, too upset and afraid to go back to sleep. The doctors tell her nothing is physically wrong with her. The last one sends her to Dr. Tremaine, Chicago's go-to therapist for sufferers of "mystery" illnesses. That can only mean she's losing her mind. But Dr. Tremaine helps Sarah see her life otherwise. Under her expert guidance, Sarah learns to mind-travel to far-away ancient Persia—and comes face-to-face with herself as Ayisha, the keeper of the secret behind the debilitating dreams. What emerges is nothing less than mystical as Sarah shadows Ayisha's descent from blushing innocence to love torn away from her so brutally only hatred and vengeance remain in her heart. How Ayisha plans to get revenge, however, threatens to destroy the lives of virtually everyone around her—including Sarah's, as she lies in hypnotic trance on the therapist's couch. There's only one thing she can do now to stop her own destruction....

    I read Mary Funk's entire novel "Remember Me" almost without a break. It was very hard to put down and I was truly blown away by it. It is a beautiful love story, but love is only one aspect of this mufti-faceted gem. The story is fast-paced, rich in adventure and unpredictable expansions. The characters are so expertly vivified, and a young girl's sufferings are described with such terrifying detail and lucidity, that one can almost experience her terror as she was subjected to unthinkable crue I read Mary Funk's entire novel "Remember Me" almost without a break. It was very hard to put down and I was truly blown away by it. It is a beautiful love story, but love is only one aspect of this mufti-faceted gem. The story is fast-paced, rich in adventure and unpredictable expansions. The characters are so expertly vivified, and a young girl's sufferings are described with such terrifying detail and lucidity, that one can almost experience her terror as she was subjected to unthinkable cruelty. But what mostly impressed me about this novel was the author's deep understanding of how our weak nature seeks vengeance first, instead of forgiveness and peace within, and that by doing so we bring nothing but destruction upon ourselves. The reader cannot help but agonize about Ayisha's fate - the innocent 14-year-old girl who was deeply in love with a boy and had her whole life planned ahead, only to be violently torn from her loved ones forever. As this ancient tale unfolds we helplessly "watch" alongside Sarah as Ayisha's startling hunger for vengeance and reckless choices put her in much danger. This magical tale's anticipated but feared conclusion expertly manages to soothe the reader's soul with the author's skillful rendition of redemption and new life found within forgiveness. Although the novel is superbly entertaining, it is this that makes it remarkable to me and puts it at the top on my recommendation list.

    I have received my copy not too long ago and I'm only 2 chapters away from the end. The story is so intriguing. Once you start reading the book, you simply can't stop. After every chapter you want to read more and more to find out what is going on with Ayisha and Zabi. I also really like how the story travels to the past to tell Ayisha and Zabi's story, but also happens in the present to explain Sarah's dream. Another thing has really caught my attention is the therapist relationship with Sarah, I have received my copy not too long ago and I'm only 2 chapters away from the end. The story is so intriguing.

The story is very interesting and involving, and the writer is beyond creative.

    A wonderful story, much of which is set in ancient Persia while some of it in the present time period. Funk does a good job of switching between past and present. The story is well-written and full of intrigue. It's an adventure story, but laced with deeper meaning that turns it into a journey of the soul where eternal truths are discovered. I highly recommend REMEMBER ME.

    A unique love story revealing deep moral truths about human civilization Don't mistake this book as an ordinary tale of romance. It is about a love story all right, but the story is emotional, graphic and brutal. There is danger and pathos lurking all around. I must say that I have never read a love story like this before. Much of it is essentially set in ancient Persia. The very beginning of the girl's journey is both pitiable as well as intriguing - the imagery constructed by this passage indic A unique love story revealing deep moral truths about human civilization Don't mistake this book as an ordinary tale of romance. It is about a love story all right, but the story is emotional, graphic and brutal. There is danger and pathos lurking all around. I must say that I have never read a love story like this before. Much of it is essentially set in ancient Persia. The very beginning of the girl's journey is both pitiable as well as intriguing - the imagery constructed by this passage indicates a clear and present danger which might be looming around her: "I—I see a girl. Yes, yes. She must be around thirteen or fourteen maybe. She’s walking as fast as she can across hard-packed sand. She’s not supposed to be out here alone in the dark. If her father or one of his men catches her, they’ll turn her back for sure. She's headed for the trees up ahead. Finally, she's reached them ... she's looking all around her ... now she's slipping into their shadows ..." On the other hand, Ayisha's true love for Zabi is described quite succinctly in this passage: Ayisha continued undeterred, "Ammi, where would I be without Zabi? How could I live without him? For as long as I can remember, he’s been my best friend. I can’t imagine even breathing without Zabi in my life. No." Much as I liked Ayisha and Zabi's tale, I didn't quite like the switch to the modern period. I wish the author had made the story strictly about Ayisha and her love and erased the hypnotherapy session between Sarah and her shrink Dr. Tremaine altogether; the back and forth switch between two different periods of time was a tad irritating and serves little purpose (to me anyways); it took me some time to get myself adjusted to that. However, strictly on the basis of Ayisha's emotional and challenging love affair I would rate it four stars. The writing style is pretty good, I could not spot any typos or grammatical mistakes and the dialogs really seem to resonate quite well with the character's emotion. The moral of the story is that for us humans, harboring feelings of hatred and vengeance comes across as an easier choice over bestowing love and forgiveness upon others, as this passage elucidates: She looked down to see her ankle bound once more by the iron chain. "I left that chain behind in the courtyard. Who put it back on me?" "You did. When you thought again about how many people hurt you and how much you wanted to hurt them back. You bound yourself to them once more even now in your death. It's just as I told you when we were in the palace together. When you condemn your enemies, you also condemn yourself. The only way out for you is forgiveness. If you don't forgive your enemies now, they will drag you off the Chinawad Bridge into the depths of hell. And they will keep you there until you choose to let them go." The ending of their love story truly made me emotional. Overall I highly recommend it for lovers of fantasy and romance books alike. Just don't let the time travel thing bother you and you would enjoy it well.
