The original inhabitants of this land were descendants of the ancient Hadadian kings of Damascus, but after the second Great War ended, the refugees

A Memoir of Love, by Jessiqua Wittman is one of the most fascinating books of our time! Not only is it a great work of art but it is also a fascinating allegorical tale.
I had originally purchased this book because I have been a life long friend of this new author. I Am so GLAD I did!!!! 
I love the way that it is written as if I were reading a journal or diary. By the end of the book the reader feels as if Love has become a best friend who has shared her life's story over a few cups of hot choco
This is one amazing book which I received from the author on a Goodreads Giveaway. (Yeah, for me!:) It is incredibly long and I had to put it down a couple of times to take a break.I later regretted that because it was hard to keep track of all the characters and incidents. However, it still was quite the experience to travel through this book. I guess that would be the best way to to describe it as an epic journey into the future. For me, reading a post-apocalyptic novel was a first and it was ...more

Jessiqua Wittman is a new writer but you could not tell it by this book. I have read many post apocalyptic type books but never one like this. She has a fresh new perspective. There are no zombies or radiated animals but what she does add is deep characters that make you really feel like you know them. You really understand why many of the "bad" guys are doing what they are doing. It also deals with some of the stickiest GOD questions that many people have and shows the human side to even the ma ...more

Let me first start off by saying that yes, this book is long. But, if you are anything like me (if you hate it when a book ends and you have to say goodbye to the characters) you will love that the end doesn't come too fast. When you first start out, it takes a little bit for the story to get going and start explaining itself, but if you stick with it you will find yourself completely hooked. Long as it may be, this book NEVER bored me, Wittman keeps you on your toes right to the last page. As s ...more
I am currently in the process of reading this book for the THIRD time and I still find it amazing! EVERY time I go through it I find something new, something interesting, something deeper! I had a really hard time putting this book down the first couple of reads because of the depths and heights to which the book takes the reader. The characters are well rounded and the plot is simplistically complicated! Like a delicate spider's web. Don't think you know the way it will all end up because just ...more

An enthralling, on the edge of your seat reading. I enjoyed reading "A Memoir of Love" because I wasn't quite sure of the outcome - not predictable.

I LOVED this book! So true-to-life. So warm and real, and human. The story is epic, but the characters won my heart!

It's a fascinating read with hidden pictures buried in the story line. Very hard to put down as it is fast paced and riveting. Sometimes shocking, but definitely makes you stop and think.

A Memoir of Love by Jessiqua Whittman
Genre: Inspirational Fiction / Chic Literature

Reviews From A Guy

A Memoir of Love is an extremely well written work of epic proportions. There are many charming stories outlined throughout it and the redemptive aspect of the Christian message is very well displayed time and time again. I would definitely recommend this book to readers of Inspirational Fiction and Chick Literature. As a man I found it not quite my cup of tea, but that doesn’t take

I started hesisantly, since the words 'post apocalyptic' setting' and 'gritty' scared me off.

However, I did not notice anything of the post-apocalyptic setting, it seemed a story that takes place in the last century.

Gritty it most certainly is, but not so much as to make it inappropriate, in my view.

The characters are very well developed/thought through, and go through real life and faith struggles. I found them to be very relatable and the way they dealt with it was often very encouraging to

It took me seven years to write this book. I went through several pencils and notebooks while writing it, and when I didn't have notebooks, I wrote on napkins and whatever else I could find. Then someone gave me a laptop with a battery that didn't work. I lived in a home that didn't have electricity, so I plugged that laptop into my car's battery for a couple hours every night and typed by candlelight.
As a result, this book has special memories tied to it that none of my other works do. I didn't
