Nell Slattery wakes up in a hospital with her memory wiped clean. One of the only two survivors in a horrific plane crash, Nell has no idea who she is...who her husband is...or anything about her life. While she begins the physical healing of her body, she desperately tries to repair her mind as well. Who was she before the crash? What are the secrets that her friends and family are keeping from her? As she searches for answers, more questions seem to be arising, and Nell finds herself being able to trust very little of what she is being told.

At first I wasn’t sure what to think, since I’ve read quite a few books that deal with memory loss. But I thought Allison Winn Scotch did a beautiful job at making this story unique, and The Song Remains the Same is one for your to-read list. As I followed Nell through her journey of trying to regain her memories, the whole story really made me think. Who are we without our memories? And what if someone I knew – my mother, sister, boyfriend – lost their memory? What story or past experience would I try to sugar coat, to keep the pain away from them? I was really fascinated throughout the entire story, and that the songs were a great way to tie everything together. There were just a few times where I didn’t think the story moved real smoothly and I had to back up and re-read a few passages, but overall a lovely novel that will leave you thinking and discussing with others.
