Reviews for The Memories We Bury
“This is such a deceptive novel and starts quite innocently enough, a neighbour willing to help out and provide support when needed, but then the author does something quite special and adds such a good psychological twist to it.” – Yvonne, Me and My Books
“This book really got under my skin. With Leuschel’s deep, intricate characters and beautiful writing, I was desperate to keep reading and discover the truth. ” Vikki Patis, Author
“What I love about H.A. Leuschel is her dedication to the development of her characters. They have distinct personalities that gives each of them a soft uniqueness, but are given a detailed background of family dynamics, trauma and experiences that adds to the overall framework of who they become. None of them are perfect, and they are all surely flawed in many ways, which makes them feel as genuine and raw as both you and I.” – Goodreads Review
