“An engrossing novel from start to finish, Forgotten explores what happens when starting over isn’t exactly up to you.” (SheKnows.com) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
Emma Tupper is a dedicated lawyer with a bright future. But when she takes a month-long leave of absence to go on an African vacation, she ends up facing unexpected consequences. After she falls ill and spends six months trapped in a remote village thanks to a devastating earthquake, Emma returns home to discover that her friends, boyfriend, and colleagues thought she was dead—and that her life has moved on without her.
As she struggles to re-create her old life, throwing herself into solving a big case for a client and trying to reclaim her beloved apartment from the handsome photographer who assumed her lease, everyone around her thinks she should take the opportunity to change. But is she willing to sacrifice her job, her relationships, and everything else she worked so hard to build?
In Forgotten, Catherine McKenzie tweaks a classic tale of discovering who we really are when everything that brings meaning to our lives is lost.--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition. See all Product Description

I simply cannot get into this book. Oh, it's readable enough, much as potato chips are edible enough, but the characters are shallow and the plot is predictable. Read morePublished on Dec 15 2012 by Kilgulbin

The story grabs you right from the start and holds your interest to the end. I found the writing style to be similar to the author's other book, Spin, which I also enjoyed.Published on May 20 2012 by Louise Nielsen
