Description

"An assured, powerful novel that blends suspense and rich family drama...it is, in a word, unforgettable." --William Landay, author of DEFENDING JACOB

Wendy Walker's All Is Not Forgotten begins in the small, affluent town of Fairview, Connecticut, where everything seems picture perfect.

Until one night when young Jenny Kramer is attacked at a local party. In the hours immediately after, she is given a controversial drug to medically erase her memory of the violent assault. But, in the weeks and months that follow, as she heals from her physical wounds, and with no factual recall of the attack, Jenny struggles with her raging emotional memory. Her father, Tom, becomes obsessed with his inability to find her attacker and seek justice while her mother, Charlotte, struggles to pretend this horrific event did not touch her carefully constructed world.

As Tom and Charlotte seek help for their daughter, the fault lines within their marriage and their close-knit community emerge from the shadows where they have been hidden for years, and the relentless quest to find the monster who invaded their town - or perhaps lives among them - drive this psychological thriller to a shocking and unexpected conclusion.

    I bought the ebook in the Apple store but then, because I have two Apple IDs, they wouldn't let me read what I bought! So I listened to the audiobook version, narrated by the excellent actor Dylan Baker, who did a great job reading this excellent novel. I've always known that Wendy Walker is great at creative plots but now she has proven herself a masterful writer as well. This book is top notch. And totally engrossing. You'll come away with a new mandate. In addition to telling your family whether you want extraordinary medical measures to be taken if something happens to you, now you also need to tell them whether you want the memory-blocking anti-PTSD treatment if something traumatic happens to you. The book is fascinating and filled with twists and turns and surprises all the way through. All in a beautifully written package that helps you discover what good writing really sounds like.

    An interesting novel. But like too many novels the rush to explain it all in the final couple of chapters is rushed and not in tune with the slow and complicated build up

    It was an interesting read. I like the authors usage of metaphors. However it was not organized well - it jumped from Tuesday to Friday and then back to Monday. If you can keep the days straight you might like the book. Additionally the book is over 1300 pages I feel it could have been condensed. Good luck!
  • Excellent book

    .....really good sample, went a little askew further in, kind of uncomfortable. Read it through to the end without the "wow, this was a great book feel". You might like it, you might not. Read rest of reviews and decide how to spend your $. I've never given out a neutral review. If you find another one, look me up and I'll give you five bucks.😉
  • Best Thriller I've read in a long time
