Publisher's Summary

Some things aren't meant to be remembered....

They're calling it the worst pileup in London history. Margaret Holloway is driving home, but her mind is elsewhere - on a troubled student, her daughter's acting class, the next day's meeting - when she's rear-ended and trapped in the wreckage. Just as she begins to panic, a disfigured stranger pulls her from the car seconds before it's engulfed in flames. Then he simply disappears.

Though she escapes with minor injuries, Margaret feels that something's wrong. She's having trouble concentrating. Her emotions are running wild. More than that, flashbacks to the crash are also dredging up lost associations from her childhood, fragments of events that had been wiped from her memory. Whatever happened, she didn't merely forget - she chose to forget. And somehow Margaret knows deep down that it has something to do with the man who saved her life.

As Margaret uncovers a mystery with chilling implications for her family and her very identity, Everything She Forgot winds through a riveting dual narrative and asks the question: How far would you go to hide the truth - from yourself?

Surprisingly emotional

In spite of some plot gaps and convenient coincidences, I finished this book with a definite lump in my throat. The character of Big George really touched me. He was the heart of the story. Initially I didn't like the narration by John Lee, but it grew on me. I liked this more than I thought I would.

A little bit predictable.

Cute story. Good characters. Narrator did a fantastic job! The ending was a bit of a disappointment.

Everything She Forgot

This book started off a little slow and the narrator's voice took some getting used to at first, but I stick with it and I'm glad I did. It was a really great story. I enjoyed every minute of it, it was so touching.
