Comments The Memory Jar

  • Kathleen (Kat) Smith

    "For so long, she'd taken her memories of Patty - the memories they'd created together - and held them outside of herself, protecting herself from the pain of carrying them deep within. It was as if she carried all the memories in her jars. But if doing so, it was as if she'd also kept everyone else - those still in her life - at arm's length too."Sarah Shelter knows she is different from most Amish girls. She can quilt but doesn't enjoy it, loves to bake, but doesn't like cooking, and find hers [...]

    This Gifted Author Weaves a Memorable Tale!It's Sarah's 10th birthday and she had "only the forest floor to occupy her" in the Amish community of West Kootenai, Montana. "Pine needles, a clump of moss, a golden leaf" were placed into an old jelly jar found in her mem's cupboard. "A pinecone would be a good find for her collection." As Sarah searched for the perfect pinecone, another young Amish girl came bounding through the woods! A freespirted child, Patty discovered beauty and excitement in e [...]


  • Joy

    Loved this book! Such a great story about falling in love. Sarah is interested in one of the bachelors and one of them is interested in her, however, they're not one and the same. On a hike to the top of a mountain Sarah hurts her ankle, while the others make their way to the top she stays put. When the others don't come back she tries to find her way to the path leading down and gets lost. Jathan leaves the group and sets out to find her. They end up having to stay the night on the mountain and [...]


  • Amber Stokes

    For a sweet falling-in-love, following-your-dreams story, this first book in the "Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors" series captures it all. While one section of the plot conveys some intrigue and suspense (on a hiking trip in the mountains), most of The Memory Jar is gently paced, often detouring into the past and focusing on internal struggles. And yet Goyer writes in an engaging way with some meaningful lines. So even though this isn't an exciting, edge-of-your-seat book, I was impressed by th [...]


  • Crystal Martin

    I am a HUGE Tricia Goyer fan. I have reviewed her books from the awesome Big Sky Series and was very excited to start the Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series. The Memory Jar by Tricia Goyer did not disappoint. Like Tricia's other Amish novels, The Memory Jar is written in a way that really draws you into the story and makes you root for all of the characters.These stories aren't just Amish stories either. They are romance novels. I think the thing I like the best about The Memory Jar is that [...]

    Many folks have probably discovered that I am a very diverse reader. I hop from Romance, Christian Fiction, YA Paranormal, etc. I just love a good book.

With that being said, I'll continue on to my most recent reads that I have finishednning with this one.I love a good clean romance from time to time.

  • Vera Godley

    My thoughts: First of all, I found the concept of a "memory jar" as kept by Sarah in "The Memory Jar" rather quaint even for an Amish story. To think that teens and adults would collect rocks, tiny pinecones, etc. and store them in a jar to aid as a tool to recollect their special moments or experiences in life is not in keeping with any society beyond that one really backward or very young. In spite of my concept and thinking on a "memory jar" that is an item of particular importance in The Mem [...]


  • Tina Watson

    FIRST, I have to say that, The Memory Jar is my favorite among Tricia Goyer's Amish books, and I can not wait for the second book in the series to be released. The Memory Jar by Tricia Goyer is a must read before we head into the holiday seasons. We need the reminder that everyone has their own opinions, their own dreams, their own way of doing things, and that is okay.I enjoyed following twenty-four-year-old Sarah Shelter as she deals with death and to understand why death happens. Also Sarah's [...]


  • Maureen Timerman

    This is the story of Sarah Shetler and her healing and finding a new life. As a little girl her family moved from Kentucky to Montana, where she is befriended by Patty. Patty and Sarah share so much of their youth together and create so many memories.When we begin this book there has been a tragic accident and Sarah's Dear friend Patty has been killed. For Sarah, Patty was that perfect "almost Sister" type friend. They shared so many memories we travel through the book we are given glimpses into [...]


  • Brandi (Rambles of a SAHM)

    I was enamored with this book from the start. Can you just imagine the commotion that these bachelors raise every spring when they arrive in this tiny community? I can just picture all those sweet young girls whispering and giggling together as they check out this year’s new crop of eligible men. It just makes me smile thinking about it.Since this is a Tricia Goyer book there are a couple of different things going on that she has masterfully woven together to create a satisfying story. Both of [...]

Can Jathan penetrate the walls that Sarah has built around her heart?Overall, I enjoyed this book. It dealt with loss, pain, friendship,and the wonderful inspirational message of allowing [...]


  • Kav

    Published in 2012, The Memory Jar is the first book in the wildly popular Seven Brides for Seven Brothers series. I love the concept of a memory jar -- collecting tangible prompts for important memories. That's the way that Sarah chooses to hold tight to special moments. I really enjoyed the flashbacks that included her friend, Patty, as they were growing up. They reveal a lot about Sarah and the reasons for the way she is in the present day. She's somewhat tenuous, carrying a burden she can't b [...]


  • Tina Peterson

    This is a wonderful lighthearted read with a serious side to it. Does that make sense? Sarah has a dream ~ and only one person ever encouraged her to reach out for that dream & now she's gone. After the terrible death of her best friend Sarah withdraws from those around her and at 23 she's an old maid (almost). Her family is supportive but Sarah is afraid to let anyone to close. Then she meets Jathan and allows herself to dream. Jathan has a dream too but his family responsibilities and fear [...]


  • Melanie

    The Memory Jar was a great Amish fiction read! I loved both of the main characters - Sarah Shelter and Jathan Schrock! One thing that was really interesting about Sarah was how she liked to make fancy cupcakes - I really liked learning about her different creations! Jathan, well, I felt bad for him a lot during this story and couldn't stop myself from hoping things would turn out for him.At the end of some chapters in The Memory Jar, there were what I'll call memory scenes that showed things tha [...]


  • Brittany

    The Memory Jar is a beautiful story of blossoming love and the healing of past hurts. Although both main characters are strong Christians, they must learn to truly trust that God has their best interests at heart.Sarah Shelter must heal from the hurt in her heart caused by the tragic death of her best friend, Patty. It seems that Sarah's life ground to a halt when Patty's ended. She throws herself into her baking and makes amazing cupcakes, but does not embrace life anymore.Jathan Schrock is a v [...]


  • Andrea Guy

    This was one of the best Amish romances I've read in a long time. There is really so much to love about the characters and the story here. Let me share them!1. Sarah's friendship with Patty. Even though Patty died several years before the story starts, her friendship shapes Sarah's life. She still makes her who she is today. The flashbacks really help bring their friendship into perspective.2. Jathan is so very human. He struggles to do not only what his family wishes for him but also what he wa [...]


  • Rhonda Gayle

    My thoughts about The Memory Jar:I really enjoyed this book but for some reason, it was a bit slow for me to "get into". As I got to know Sarah and Jathan, I was eagerly reading to see what was going to happen next for them. This book deals with loss, death, grief, and living out one's dreams. Sarah and Jathan both have some unusual dreams for their future and this creates conflict among the characters of the book. It was very refreshing to see them having to work these conflicts out, in order t [...]


  • ⚜️Trea

    I picked this up from the library and was lucky enough to pick it up for $2.99 for the Kindle recently. The series name was my lure right from the start, as I love the movie Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Not having read too much of this author, I didn't know what to expect. I have to say, this book surprised me. It was a full length read, and well written. I learned some things along the way, and paused to consider some of the situations faced by the characters. One thing that distracted from [...]


  • Leah

    This was a nice story about friendship and family. I liked the flashbacks about the items in Sarah's and Patty's memory jars. I thought that those stories were interesting and the best parts of this book. Also, there was a bit of romance. I liked that part of the story, and overall, I liked the MCs. Actually, I liked Jathan more at the beginning of the story and Sarah more at the end of the story. I'm glad they each got a happy ending.


  • Cheryl Baranski

    Just finsished reading The Memory Jar by Tricia Goyer. What an amazing book! I laughed and I cried! Oh my. Hard a hard time putting this book down. I am so looking forward to the next book in the series. You will fall in love with Sarah and Jathan. Who can forget Patty and her story in the book. Make sure you have a drink, snack and tissues, you won’t want to set it down. Thank you to Tricia Goyer for writing such a wonderful book, and to Zondervan for publishing it


  • Sarah Sundin

    he Memory Jar is more than a sweet romance. Sarah and Jathan juggle the desires of family and community, their personal dreams, and following God's will. And Sarah also has important lessons to live about treasuring the past instead of dwelling in the past. Tricia Goyer's writing, as always, is engaging. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel.


  • Cara Putman

    I really enjoy Tricia's books and the way she brings a fresh voice to her characters and stories. The Memory Jar is Amish with a twist, because it begins in Montana. It is a journey to wholeness and a journey to dreams. There's plenty of love and romance to keep the pages turning. A very satisfying story for those who love gentler stories.


  • Sharon

    This is the first book in The Seven Brides for Seven Bachelor's series by Tricia Goyer - I have read several of her books , and I would definitely recommend this one - it is a sweet story of Sarah Shelter who saves her's & her best friends memories in a jar. Without spoiling the novel she comes full circle in the end and is given a great gift! I loved this book!


  • SheLove2Read

    I normally enjoy these Amish romances but this was a dud. The dialog made the characters sound ignorant. The pacing was slow and the author described each character or item to the Nth degree when it really wasn't necessary to the story. DNF


  • Cherese Akhavein

    The book spoke to me on many levels, particularly since I read it right now with my mother passing in July of 2017 and I read the book in December. My mother use to love being in nature listening to all God's creation, looking at the wonders of what he alone created. This story starts off with a great loss for Sarah Shelter which she continues to deal with throughout the book, as Sarah deals with the loss of her best friend through the memories they have shared she finds comfort by visiting all [...]
