Synopsis

'This is a wonderful book, its different strands weaving around each other and coming together in the most fantastic conclusion. I am so jealous of David Whitehouse’s writing.' Adam Kay

Memories make us who we are – but what if yours belonged to someone else?

David Whitehouse's The Long Forgotten is the story of a missing plane, a rare-flower hunter, and a lonely young man who has begun to remember a past that isn’t his. It’s the story of a long-buried mystery, a quest that ended in tragedy, and a love that can never be forgotten.

'Powerful, eccentric . . . Whitehouse's writing is energetic and pacey, spiked with startling moments of tenderness and superbly controlled' The Times

This is a wonderful book, its different strands weaving around each other and coming together in the most fantastic conclusion. I am so jealous of David Whitehouse’s writing – his use of language is almost unfair

Adam Kay, author of This is Going to Hurt

Whitehouse makes you feel what it's like to be 12 again: the obsessions, the fears, the boundless curiosity. Heartwarming and heartbreaking, sometimes in the space of one page
