‘The Memory Trade’ by Jen Chatfield

When George Lenihan’s mom dies, he expects to deal with her funeral, her possessions, and to try to reconcile his life without her. He does not expect to face her selected memories as recorded by a high tech vault of stored lives. And a mountain of lies to go with it. It’s bad enough that he has to find out about Ginny’s secret life by watching her memories. What’s worse is that the experience includes more – what she smells, feels, and physical pain – via an interactive dome. Like when she tumbles down a ravine on her bike, breaks her ankle, and is comforted by a stranger who calms her by singing Irish folk songs. And when she falls in love with the stranger. And every tingle she feels when he falls in love with her right back. But that pales in comparison to finding out the stranger, Zane, is his father. A father he thought died before he was born. A father who farmed medical marijuana, was a former heroin addict, and disappeared while on ‘farm’ business, just in time for Ginny to find out she’s pregnant. The best part? Learning that the mom who offered advice and talked to him on the phone every day wasn’t what she seemed. And George has to decide whether or not he wants to meet the man who knew of his existence the whole time and begged Ginny to keep it a secret.
