9780062391483: Everything She Forgot

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?

Review:

Ballantyne s effortless prose took me across the Atlantic and didn t let me return until its surprising and satisfying conclusion. A tight story that comes full circle and keeps you reading. --Bryan Reardon, author of Finding Jake"

A sweet novel of love, redemption, and loss that chronicles one family s struggle with a difficult past. --Kirkus"

Ballantyne weaves a fine tale of family drama, dark secrets, and the past s effect on the present. The threads seamlessly come together in a heart-wrenching, yet hopeful, finale. --Publishers Weekly"

A moving and sensitive mystery about childhood trauma and its resolution. --Booklist"

Thought-provoking, brave, and challenging. --Rosamund Lupton, international bestselling author of Sister "

Praise for The Guilty One: Sophisticated, suspenseful, unsettling, and highly recommended: a terrific debut from an author to watch. -- Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author"
