A Gemstone Book (TRADE PAPERBACK) - 403 pages: **** When Danny Davenport and Nick Nicholson first slug it out on the south end of the football field they are two elementary-school innocents already... More > troubled by the prospect of losing their youth. Then comes Lily Winterspring, binding them together “with all the pain of a splinter sewn through [their] hearts.” The bitter flows out of the sweet and the bonds between the two are tested, first by sudden tragedy and then by a monstrous duplicity that slowly comes to the surface. **** Combining the intimacy of family and marital relationships, together with a candid yearning and genuine moments of suspense, HEAVEN'S WAY is a deeply moving story about love, loss, and betrayal — and the redemption only faith and devotion can bring. **** Written in the form of a memoir, with confession at its center, and driven thematically by elements of metafiction, HEAVEN'S WAY stands in a genre of its own.< Less

A Compass Book (Trade Paperback) - 130 pages *** AS NOTED IN THE PREFACE to this tour de force, “It is virtually impossible to read the scriptures without considering the multitude of... More > contraryisms if not the profound if only ‘apparent contradictions’ that embody divine truths.” *** The Divine Paradox gives consideration to a few of the remarkable and deeply profound paradoxes that lie within the scriptures, paradoxes given and revealed by divinity to assure us not only of the nature of our reality but more importantly the nature of our relationship to the Father and the Son. *** As we come to understand the Divine Paradox, we come to more fully appreciate the principles that lie behind our free agency, the atonement, and eternal life. We come to more fully appreciate what the Lord means when, in Moses 1:39, he tells the ancient prophet, “For behold, this is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.”< Less

A Gemstone Book (TRADE PAPERBACK) - 349 pages *** To escape a life of abuse, fifteen-year-old Evan Adamson sacrifices the love of his childhood sweetheart only to find himself caught up in the... More > ill-begotten adventures of three Gypsy outcasts who ultimately teach him the ways of the heart and the soul, and most importantly that, “...there will always be that in this world which goes beyond understanding and speaks to the heart in a more meaningful way.” When Evan finds himself torn between the dark girl of his dreams and a promise he made to his mother years before, he sees in a single moment the reflection of his own true nature and the capacity for a love that transcends all else. By the very enigma of riddles, he comes to discover himself. And those discoveries are heartbreaking and wise, as complex as they are devastating—for in heaven and in our dreams, love is simple and glorious, but it is something quite different in the world of flesh.< Less

More > Memmott’s book is an excursion into the psychology of love, while on another level it voices the despair of love and relationships misunderstood.
