Falling in love with Lenny should have been the end to all her troubles. For Anita, it's only the beginning, when family secrets start unravelling. His ex-wife, Natasha, is succumbing to a mysterious disease. How can Anita compete with her shadow? How can she find a voice of her own?
And when his estranged son, Ben, comes back and lives in the same small apartment, can she keep the balance between the two men, whose desire for her is marred by guilt and blame?
Dealing with the challenging prospects of the marriage of opposites, this book can be read as a standalone novel as well as part of one of family sagas best sellers. Still Life with Memories is a family saga series tinged with family saga romance, fraught with marital issues, and riddled with the difficulty of connecting fathers and sons.
I very much enjoyed this. It was engaging and very entertaining. Would recommend. Provided in exchange for a review.

This was a fantastic read. I found the first person narration refreshing. We see through a window straight into Anita’s mind; all of her desires and wants are exposed. We follow Anita’s story as she becomes a woman. Poznansky’s writing is solid and rich; and through Anita’s perspective we view a vivid world.
Although this story is not a genre I would normally read, I was enthralled by Anita’s voice. Anita is a wonderful character, and the narrator: Heather Jane Hogan, has done a great job of bringing her to life. She has an amazing southern drawl, which is soothing to listen to. Her reading is intuitive, and I soon found myself immersed in Anita’s world.
I highly recommend this book not just for readers of romance fiction, but for all readers who enjoy a good story and detailed three-dimensional characters. Five stars.
