Introduction

A troubled young mother yearns for a shot at redemption in this heartbreaking yet hopeful story from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover.

After serving five years in prison for a tragic mistake, Kenna Rowan returns to the town where it all went wrong, hoping to reunite with her four-year-old daughter. But the bridges Kenna burned are proving impossible to rebuild. Everyone in her daughter’s life is determined to shut Kenna out, no matter how hard she works to prove herself.

The only person who hasn’t closed the door on her completely is Ledger Ward, a local bar owner and one of the few remaining links to Kenna’s daughter. But if anyone were to discover how Ledger is slowly becoming an important part of Kenna’s life, both would risk losing the trust of everyone important to them.

The two form a connection despite the pressure surrounding them, but as their romance grows, so does the risk. Kenna must find a way to absolve the mistakes of her past in order to build a future out of hope and healing.

Discussion Questions

1. When we meet Kenna she is just moving into town. We learn right off the bat she had a baby in prison. What were your first impressions of her? Did you feel any empathy in the beginning?

2. Ledger is captivated immediately by Kenna. Do you think that some people with shared histories are just drawn together? Or was he just seeing a pretty girl?

3. Ledger is a big part of Diem’s life and has been from the beginning. What were your thoughts early on how Scotty’s family was choosing to raise Diem away from her mother? Did you understand it, or would you have done things differently?

4. Colleen Hoover goes a lot into how hard a time Kenna has getting a fresh start in life after prison because of the biases against parolees. Did the book bring up any thoughts on how that system works today?

5. Which character did you feel the most empathy for? Why?

6. Ledger and Kenna keep the beginnings of their attraction to each other a secret from most other people. Do you feel this was the only way to handle things? The best way?

7. How believable did the plot feel to you? What about the happy ending?

8. If you could ask the characters or author any question, what would it be?

9. How did you feel overall reading this book? Did it bother you, encourage you, frustrate you? Did you feel the same at the end as you did in the first few chapters?

10. How long did it take you get through the book? Was it one you couldn’t put down or you had to keep coming back to?

11. Have you read other books by Colleen Hoover? Is there anything similar in themes or writing style in this book compared to her others? Did you like this one more or less?

12. If you haven’t read other books by Colleen Hoover, did Reminders of Him make you want to?

Not into the love story. It was a good story over all, lots of emotion and pretty well written, but everything was a bit over the top.

Love love loved this book. A beautifully told story of a topic and perspective I have never considered. I also just loved Diem’s little personality.
