Please Remember This - Kathleen Gilles Seidel. Chapter 1. It was part rock festival, part Star Trek convention, and part plain old down-home country fair without the baby pigs and homemade jams. Nina Lane had been a writer of speculative fantasy, creating in her three books a medieval-like, magic-filled universe that had inspired cultish devotion since her death twenty-four years before. In which direction did the river Ghyfist flow? Apparently that was a very controversial question.

Kathleen Gilles Seidel, author. Award-winning contemporary romance author

Kathleen Gilles Seidel, author. Award-winning contemporary romance author. cularly valuable and in terms of production is an "industrious gentleman. The heroine has a Husky, about whom Caroline Russomanno of the allaboutromance. com site wrote, "you’re going to love Lacey’s joyously disloyal, boneheadedly exuberant dog Tank.

It has always been a burden for quiet, level-headed Tess Lanier to be the daughter of Nina Lane -- the gifted and tormented author who died soon after Tess's birth. Determined to be nothing like her exuberant mother, Tess, a collector of antique lace, lives in California, safe and anonymous, far from theKansas town her family once called home, where Nina penned her extraordinary stories.

But when her dying grandfather asks her to go back, she cannot refuse. And on the banks of the Missouri River, she meets Ned Ravenal, a vibrant man who is living his dream, excavating a paddlewheel steamboat that sank one hundred and fifty years ago. Tess had family on that boat, and Ned uncovers their secrets that, in turn, unlock the mysteries of Nina's life. No longer afraid of the past, Tess discovers in herself spirit, passion, and richness as intricate as her lace.

This is the first book I have read by this author. The book had a very minor romantic element. I valued it because it focused on other very real things....that seemed more important than romance, and that was OK with me. If you are looking for a strict romance, this may not be for you as I felt the romance took 2nd place (or maybe 3rd) to the themes of creating a life, and I found that theme refreshing. The main character is creating her own life, a 20-something moving to a new town and finding out who she is, starting a new business, a coffee shop in small town. The town itself is undergoing a difficult transition as people stop shopping downtown and are instead going to a new KMart out of town---and the main characters are trying to create a new life for the town via a variety of new businesses & festivals. The book also reflects on the challenges of creating a life via parenthood, especially when one's child is not the "model" child many people hope for.

I found it interesting to hear of the various projects that the town tries to organize to revitalize the area so that the town can provide jobs and incomes for its inhabitants. I enjoyed hearing about small town life. Most of all I enjoyed gaining insight about mother/daughter challenging situations. The main character is a young woman whose mother died when she was 3 months old. She was subsequently raised by her grandparents. The main characters learns through the book what it might have been like to be her grandmother, to have a "difficult" child, and then to have the burden of raising her daughter's infant. It also provided insight about the main character's own thoughts about her mother. For me, it was a poignant story but an enjoyable one. That being said, I was not looking for a "romance" per se. The romance was very low key---not just no sex scenes, but almost no romance--instead a slow, steady friendship. There was much more text devoted to setting up new businesses, the challenges of digging up a paddleboat from the 1800s, and finding vintage linens & lace, setting up displays etc, than text devoted to romance and I found it interesting. If you accept that this is a story about small town life, and do not expect a romance, I think you will enjoy this slow-paced, insightful book.
I can't believe anyone found this book boring! Two stories wrap around each other. One is the story of Tess Lanier, daughter of famous writer Nina Lane--a mother she never knew. Raised by elderly grandparents, Tess' whole life has been about not being demanding, emotional and brilliant like her mother. When her grandparents die, Tess keeps a promise to go back to the small town in Kansas where they lived before the Depression, and where her famous mother lived.

The second story, and maybe even better, is about a man determined to dig up an old riverboat, sunk before the Civil War, and the town rallying around his efforts, striving for an economic revival. I've lived in a small town that lost its center, and I found the efforts to save the town fascinating. Even more interesting was the boat itself, and the stories of the people whose lives were forever changed when it sank.

Of course there's a romance, and it's a slow, gentle romance. I have no patience with "love at first sight"--I like people to get to know and understand each other, as they do here. Tess has to come to terms with her mother's legacy before she feels free to love and be loved.

This isn't a thrilling book. No murders. No car chases. No sex scenes. Just delightful, well-developed characters, a more interesting than average setting, and a great story.
This is one of my favorite authors -- I have been reading her books since she wrote 180 page Harlequins. I really enjoyed the story in this book and the Nina Lane festivals and the things we learned about Tess's life. I did not feel that the characters were as engaging as the rest of her books. If you really enjoy her books and haven't read this one, I would read it, but please don't make this the first one that you read!
I love nearly all of Kathleen's books but this is one of my favorites! It is fictional but based loosely on a true story and she just brings you into the story so beautifully. I read this one over and over again - it's one of my comfort food books!
Seidel spends time on character development. I have enjoyed all her books. Well-written and researched. This was not my favorite book by Ms. Seidel but I am glad I read it.
Suffering from manic depression, Nina Lane could not cope with her sudden fame as a must read science fiction writer. Nina commits suicide three months after she gives birth to Tess. Her maternal grandparents raise the infant as far way from the Nina nonsense as possible.

About twenty-four years later with her grandparents who raised her dead and feeling all alone, Tess decides to find out about her maternal heritage. She returns to her birth town of Fleur-de-lis, Kansas where she decides to open up a coffee and gift shop. Ned Ravenal sees his dreams about to occur as he leads the excavation of the Western Settler, a riverboat that sunk in the Missouri in 1857, but because of a river shift is currently buried under a corn field. When Ned and Tess meet, an attraction transpires between them. Since both are preoccupied and neither able to see the flying sparks between them, a relationship appears doubtful even if they fall in love.

PLEASE REMEMBER THIS has all that fans of Kathleen Gilles Seidel expect with the novel containing strong prose, deep characters, and a powerful story line. However, this reviewer feels discontented in spite of a well-written book because the plot focuses on Tess' needs to discover the essence of her mother rather than the more fascinating Western Settler (past and present) as its core theme. Still, you can't always get what you want and Ms. Seidel does provide fans with a powerful emotion-laden contemporary romance.
