Ms. Funk is an amazing writer and I wait with enthusiasm for her next novel.
Good for you!
Congratulations upon completing your story. Anxious to buy a copy. Cathy Luongo
Remember Me transported me back in time to a world of trechery and betrayal, intrigue, and enduring romance. The author has woven a rich story filled with a cast of characters that literally come alive right on the page. I was captivated right from the beginning and rivieted through the ending. Don't miss out on this exciting novel, you will not be disappointed.
A wonderful story, much of which is set in ancient Persia. And some of it in the present time period. Funk does a good job of switching between past and present. The story is well-written and full of intrigue. It's an adventure story, but laced with deeper meaning. I highly recommend REMEMBER ME.
The reader will have no problem remembering "Remember Me." This novel succeeds on several levels. It is an accurate portrayal of ancient Persia during the reign of Darius I—a time most of us remember reading about in history books but few of us really understand. The people we meet in this novel are very much like the people we meet and read about every day. They have the same fears and desires, hopes and dreams.
This brings us to the second level. The story is not being related as a historical treatise but rather through the revelations of a woman’s haunting dreams. She shares an almost eerie tie to a young girl’s tragic love story. More importantly, her journey teaches us lessons that never become outdated.
"Remember Me," offers the reader the best of two worlds—a story with a lesson for the mind and a lesson with a story for the soul.
What a wonderful journey. The first chapter leaves me hungry for more. The author's imagination unleashes many adventurous possibilities for an exciting novel. A must read...I do believe.
First of all, may I say Remember Me is a superb writing with culture of the Persia of its time. There is much to learn through the reading of your work about its setting. It is filled with many details and vocabulary of the language spoken that makes it rich and entertaining. The plot is filled with rich and unexpected conflicts all the way to the end, but to me the most eye catching are all the truth lessons in it. I must say you are a historical novel writer with a metaphysical twist in it. Each character represents something in each and everyone of us. CONGRATULATIONS YOU'VE GOT A HIT!
I'm in a privileged position to meet and work with Ms. Funk. You truly are a talented writer! I wish you all the success and more power. I can't wait to get a copy of your book so I can share! Definitely something worth reading! Congratulations and good luck!
I was privileged to read Mary Funk's entire novel "Remember Me" prior to it being published and was truly blown away by it. It is a beautiful love story, but love is only one aspect of this mufti-faceted gem. The story is fast-paced, rich in adventure and unpredictable expansions. The characters are so expertly vivified, and a young girl's sufferings are described with such terrifying detail and lucidity, that one can almost experience her terror as she was subjected to unthinkable cruelty. But what mostly impressed me about this novel was the author's deep understanding of how our weak nature seeks vengeance first, instead of forgiveness and peace within, and that by doing so we bring nothing but destruction upon ourselves.
The reader cannot help but agonize about Ayisha's fate - the innocent 14-year-old girl who was deeply in love with a boy and had her whole life planned ahead, only to be violently torn from her loved ones forever. As this ancient tale unfolds we helplessly "watch" alongside Sarah as Ayisha's startling hunger for vengeance and reckless choices put her in much danger.
This magical tale's anticipated but feared conclusion expertly manages to soothe the reader's soul with the author's skillful rendition of redemption and new life found within forgiveness. Although the novel is superbly entertaining, it is this that makes it remarkable to me and puts it at the top on my recommendation list.
An excellent book. highly recommended
