A Richard and Judy Book Club pick. Sharon Guskin's The Forgetting Time is a gripping yet heartfelt mystery and a beautiful tale of the bond between mother and child.

Noah is a little boy who knows things he shouldn't and remembers things he should have forgotten. Because as well as being a four-year-old called Noah, he remembers being a nine-year-old called Tommy.

He remembers his house.
His family.
His mother.

And now he wants to go home.

Two boys. Two mothers.
One unforgettable story . . .
