Do you remember your first love? Sam Tibbits does, he met Aubrey while on his families vacation at Piddock Beach, Oregon. Aubrey’s family lived at the coastal town and took tourists out fishing on their boats. Every summer of his childhood he and Aubrey played together searching the tides and growing closer until the day came when they drifted apart as young adults. Sam became a Pastor, but never married and he always wondered what happened to Aubrey.

A series of tragedies leads Sam back to Oregon where he still longs to see Aubrey and relive his happy childhood summers in her company. Remember Me is an engaging Christian romance novel, great reading for a long summer weekend. It is also a contemporary mystery with a twist at the end and true to life characters. ( )

Plot Summary: What happens, When & Where, Central Characters, Major Conflicts
Sam always enjoyed the vacations his family took at the seaside when he was growing up. Part of that was the friendship he enjoyed with Aubrey, growing up with her from when she was a fearless tomboy to sharing their first kiss together. But, just when he was ready to declare his love to Aubrey and ask her to marry him, she and her family disappeared. Now, years later, Sam is a minister, still single, and pastoring a church that suddenly decides he needs a leave of absence. Sam, with his troubled teenage nephew in tow, returns to the seaside town of his childhood family vacations. Aubrey has also returned to her hometown, hoping to escape for a while from the painful situation of her marriage to an alcoholic husband.






Style Characterisics: Pacing, clarity, structure, narrative devices, etc.
The relationships and inner struggles of the characters provide most of the drama. The plot is somewhat predictable, if a bit implausible (Sam & Aubrey just happening to meet?). Sam & Aubrey don't end up together though, no matter how much the reader wants them too. Yet the required happy ending ensues. The emotional/faith issues faced by the characters add welcome depth and realism to the story. Bedford presents flawed, real human beings wrapped up in a story bigger than themselves.






How Good is it?
Good to read when you are in a serious mood, fans of romance will enjoy but need to be open to the hero/heroine not ending up with each other. ( )

Sam Tibbits loves life--especially life at Piddock Beach, where his family spends their vacations. It's here that he's come to care for Aubrey, his childhood confidante. So the year Aubrey's family moves away with no forwarding address, Sam is crushed. He was going to propose.
Aubrey McCart enjoys being with Sam; he accepts her unconditionally like her father never has. But when her father's pride and joy--her brother--is killed in Vietnam, Aubrey is unable to cope. She chooses a path that changes her life forever, leading her away from Sam.
Years later, when Sam and Aubrey find themselves back at Piddock Beach, the two are forced to confront their abandoned friendship and make peace with their lives. But can they do so without overstepping their moral boundaries?
