This is the first book by Tricia Goyer that I have read. I have heard so many wonderful things about her books and wasn't disappointed reading this one.
I fell in love with the main character, Sarah. My heart broke reading about the tragedy of losing her best friend. To witness the healing of her heart in the author's words was beautiful. My heart fluttered a bit with her interactions with Jathan. I also loved him and his story of resisting the expectations of others on how he should live his life when he wanted something so different.
The Memory Jar is a lovely story of a healed heart finding love where she least expected it and the man she gives her heart to.
If you are looking for a fantastic book to read, look no further.
You should definitely read this one.

About the Book
Every year, 30--40 young Amish men descend on the cozy little town of West Kootenai, Montana, arriving in the spring to live there for six months and receive 'resident' status for the hunting season in the fall. They arrive as bachelors, but go home with brides! Sarah Shelter has lived in West Kootenai for the last ten years and wonders if she will ever fall in love. Since the tragic death of her best friend, she carries her memories in a jar along with the small items connected to them. For just as long, she's also been carrying around her emotions instead of allowing them to penetrate deep into her heart. Now she's met a kind and gentle man who may be able to break down the wall. But can Sarah risk her heart to finally achieve her dreams?
