Your partner has had a mysterious accident, leaving them with no memory.
They don’t remember anything: how you met, your first kiss, not even your wedding day.
An experimental medical treatment promises a cure. A chance to relive the memories.
Going through with it might bring you back together.
But discovering the truth about the accident will tear you apart.
Do you walk away?
Or open Pandora’s Box?
Forget Me was a love story at its very heart, an emotionally resonant and utterly compelling one- made more so by it’s speculative and mystery elements – Andrew Ewart allows his characters to speak, about their relationship, their secrets and their devastating losses and it tugs on the heartstrings. I loved it.
Brain injury, memory loss, changes of personality, all hit home on a personal level which made Forget Me particularly thought provoking for this reader. I have a friend whose wife lost herself to such an injury and I have no doubt that if the treatment described in Forget Me was a thing, he would have tried it and damn the consequences. Therefore I understood Hannah’s motivations here and devoured the whole thing in one sitting.
Beautifully written and cleverly layered we see Hannah and Euans love story unfold..under the strangest of circumstances, where nothing is quite as it seems. Forget Me has the best elements of a psychological thriller with all the emotions of a heart wrenching character drama plus an intriguing puzzle at the heart of it. What happened..why did it happen…where did this golden couple fall so hopelessly apart.
So much to love here, a right old page turner that has an intimate, atmospheric feel to it that leads you to a resolution you won’t easily forget. Very good indeed. Another to watch in 2020.
