Finding a Memory Audiobook Celebration Tour ~ A Review & Giveaway

About the Book

Book: Finding a Memory

Author: Chautona Havig

Narrator: Christa DelSorbo

GenreChristian Women’s Fiction

Release date: February, 2022

He loved her then. Will she love him now?

When Mallory Barrows finds an old diary in a box of books, the story she finds within sends her on the hunt for the owner–and maybe more.

Theirs is a story ripped from a country song. A wedding, a former love presumed dead, her new love stepping aside. And over forty years later, their story is one few remember.

With Mallory determined to find the people in the pages of that diary, one couple is offered the second chance of a lifetime.

This “second-chance / seasoned romance” novel introduces the next island in the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.

I love reading books from Chautona Havig, and also love reading books from the Independence Islands series. This book lived up to my expectations. This story of a discovered journal by Mallory leads to a second chance at love for another couple. Adding audio narration to this story helps bring the story to life. Christa DelSorbo captures these characters completely and flawlessly in my opinion. I loved hearing the story read aloud. The next best thing to reading this book comes from listening to the audiobook version read by Christa DelSorbo.

Ms. Havig creates stories and characters that draw the reader in and makes them feel what the characters are feeling. I feel this book provides the perfect introduction to the next island in the series. Any time, I have the chance to listen to a book I read and love brings me happiness.

Christa DelSorbo brings the words written by Chautona Havig to life. She helps me feel as though I am there with the characters.

While you can read this book alone, I recommend reading all of the books in the series in order. I promise you will enjoy them. Many characters reappear, so you continue to get to know more about them. So check out this book for yourself as a book to read or audiobook to listen to at any time.

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook, but this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

About the Author

Using story to connect readers with the Master Storyteller.

Chautona Havig lives in an oxymoron, escapes into imaginary worlds that look startlingly similar to ours, and writes the stories that emerge. An irrepressible optimist, Chautona sees everything through a kaleidoscope of It’s a Wonderful Life sprinkled with fairy tales. Find her at and say howdy—if you can remember how to spell her name.

About the Narrator

Speaking Life into Story

Queen of the one-eyebrow quirk, Christa DelSorbo auditioned for the role of Tarzan’s mom and has the photos to prove she ended up as the only cast member in a literal cast. These days, they keep her stuck in a box with a ball on a stick and only feed her when she reads another chapter of another fabulous book. She loves every minute. Or so they tell her. *eyebrow slowly raises *
