The River Leith by Leta Blake

The River Leith by Leta Blake

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Blurb
Memory is everything.

After an injury in the ring, amateur boxer Leith Wenz wakes to discover his most recent memories are three years out of date. Unmoored and struggling to face his new reality, Leith must cope anew with painful revelations about his family. His brother is there to support him, but it’s the unfamiliar face of Zach, a man introduced as his best friend, that provides the calm he craves. Until Zach’s presence begins to stir up feelings Leith can’t explain.

For Zach, being forgotten by his lover is excruciating. He carefully hides the truth from Leith to protect them both from additional pain. His bottled-up turmoil finds release through vlogging, where he confesses his fears and grief to the faceless Internet. But after Leith begins to open up to him, Zach's choices may come back to haunt him.

Ultimately, Leith must ask his heart the questions memory can no longer answer.

My Review

Wow... What can I say about this book...Well it resonated with me as I have had a brain injury (a stroke 18 month ago)and although my memory was mostly unaffected I still identified with much of what both Leith and Zach went through. I spent much of this book on the verge of tears and in floods of tears by the end, this story was beautifully told and touched me deeply. It will stay with me for a long time it treated the subject matter with honesty and dignity while still delivering a believable love story. All in all a damn fine read!!
