The Way to Remember is a work of fiction in the women’s fiction, interpersonal drama, and slice of life sub-genres, and was penned by Martha Reynolds. In this bold and emotive coming of age novel, we are introduced to life in America in the mid-1970s, where our nineteen-year-old protagonist finds herself expelled from college and estranged from her family. Robin Fortune has no plan to get back on track, save for a long-seated aspiration and a novel hiding in her closet across many notebooks. So when a famed and prestigious author comes to town, Robin spies an opportunity, only to discover that life is never quite what we intend it to be in the long run.
Martha Reynolds has crafted a beautiful and compelling coming of age tale which puts a headstrong but ultimately naïve young woman at the forefront of events and shows us that we’ve all got what it takes to make it, but it might not be in the ways that we first imagine. One of the things which I most enjoyed about the novel was that Robin felt like a fully realized person, with more than just the obvious immediate problems to handle. There was a deep exploration of her nature and character which served as a driving force behind the events of the plot. I also felt that Maryana Capture represented a particular age of struggle and knowledge about the publishing world and its many hurdles, which was astute and engaging as an antagonistic force. Overall, I would certainly recommend The Way to Remember as a highly accomplished work of drama.
