Ainsley Jacobs is a twenty-year-old student with a bright future and the confidence to go after the things she wants. Living away from her family she has her best friend Adam by her side for support, guidance and all-important drinking buddy.
Meredith Frenz is a well-respected professor who teaches the Literary Memoir class. She is professional, dedicated and committed to her job and her students. As the new semester begins, however, so does a chain of events that rock her well-organised life and make her question her sanity.
Is it possible that there comes a time when age is just a number? When social pressure no longer brings into question the reason why two souls are drawn to each other? Is love worth risking everything for? This story makes the reader contemplate these questions and more. It’s impossible not to feel Ainsley and Meredith’s pain and anxiety, their passion and love, eventually hoping that they can make it through the turbulent maze.
On the surface “Memoir in the Making” would seem to be the typical “Cougar” love story between a young student and the older professor. But this is no typical romance. The characters are beautifully crafted and the depth of emotion bleeds from the page. Ms Smith writes with passion and angst in equal measure. The reader can’t help but be swept up in the growing sexual tension and the frustration that reverberates through every chapter.
