What is Love's Memory about?
Valerie Mahoney, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks, falls deeply in love with basketball star. Manny Scott. Against his parents’ wishes, the two wed and baby Wren soon follows. Years later adversity strikes and Manny begins questioning his youthful decisions, including his love for his wife. Heartbroken, Valerie flees one night but a disastrous accident leaves her with amnesia. Distraught, Manny begins the desperate quest to find a wife who doesn't recognize him and return her home.
It's also a story about a marriage that gets torn apart by life-the sorrows, the pains, the everyday mundane that is apart of life. It's a story of redemption-God rebuilding lives and a marriage. In the back of Love's Memory I have a small Bible Study that anyone can go through that covers these issues.
Love's Memory is about HOPE. That is the major theme. It's a life theme for all of us, too. Hope is that flicker of life, so to speak, that God puts inside everyone when they are Born Again. Without hope, we will wither and die. We won't realize our dreams. We need hope in order to thrive and to achieve our destiny. And we need to nurture hope. Hope is renewed daily through our relationship with Jesus Christ. He is our Hope. I like what Vineet Bansal says: " Hope is bright shining light which keeps darkness at the bay..."
Psalm 42:5 Why are you in despair, O my inner self? And why have you become disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him, for the help of His Presence.
Psalm 130:7 O Israel, hope in the Lord! For with the Lord there is loving-kindness, and with Him is abundant redemption.
