Synopsis

'When I wasn't reading Sharon Guskin's The Forgetting Time, I was itching to return to it' Jodi Picoult

Noah is four and wants to go home. The only trouble is he's already there.

Janie's son is her world, and it breaks her heart that he has nightmares.
That he's terrified of water.
That he sometimes pushes her away and screams that he wants his real mother.
That it's getting worse and worse and no one seems to be able to help.

In desperation, she turns to someone who might have an answer - but it may not be one she's ready to hear.
It may also mean losing the one thing she loves more than anything.
Noah.

A novel that spans life, death and everything in between, The Forgetting Time tells an unforgettable story - about Noah, about love, and, above all, about the things we hold onto when we have nothing else.

In the media

A cracking read
Prima
Sharon Guskin's debut is an incredible Russian doll of a novel, beginning as a seemingly ordinary story of maternal struggle, it soon unfurls into a fascinating tour of reincarnation, a compelling murder mystery, and an examination of the familial bond. Like Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones, at its core it really is just superb fiction
The Herald
For fans of The Lovely Bones, this psychological mystery will have you hooked until the case is closed
