Publisher's Summary

For 25 years, Anne Mitchell was enslaved by what she called the "Boogeyman" - images from her lost childhood that appeared in the shadows behind her reflection in mirrors and wine glasses, haunted her dreams, and attacked her in screaming night terrors. Fear of facing that secret held her hostage. Like a schoolyard bully, it twisted her arm behind her back and forced her to accept that her life began in the dirt beside a ditch when she was 11 years old.

Then the monster shattered her career.

And Anne saw him in her dying mother's eyes. With her last breath, Susan Mitchell begged for her daughter's forgiveness. She didn't mean for it to happen, she gasped, but she'll burn in hell for what she did all the same.

What did her mother do? Anne has to know. So she has come home to a small Texas prairie town, to live with her crazy grandmother in the rambling old house where she grew up, to take her stand against the Boogeyman. But Anne isn't really prepared for how expensive remembering might be. The cost of her memories could very well be her sanity. She might even have to pay for her past with her life.

Wow, a powerful, riveting story!

I highly recommend this book! WARNING, readers should fasten their seat-belt before literally diving-into this incredible story! Ninie Hammon's, The Memory Closet, has an absolutely fascinating, well-written plot. Anne Mitchell's hunt for the —Boogeyman— is downright riveting. The author reveals main elements of the story masterfully— little by little, by leaving a trail of breadcrumbs for her readers to discover along the way. An added warning, some of Anne's memories are very painful to learn of, you really feel for her throughout!

If you like to read books that engage their readers with many plot twists and turns, this is the book for you! The story is engaging and masterfully written!

Good book

Not a happy story, but a good one. Talented narrator, and liked how it all came together at the end.
