The House of Memories

The House of Memories - Monica McInerney First McInerney. Everything's almost fantasy-like. The perfect uncle. The ideal job for mom. Perfect step-dad. #firstworldproblems. Let's put the heroine in turmoil. Everything seems telegraphed in the book. It comes across as almost bloodless, with so many characters and it's hard to feel anything for any of them. It's all so genteel and civilised. All the loose ends tie up completely and perfectly. Pop psychology tropes are on display.
