The forgetting time by Sharon Guskin.
Noah is four and wants to go home. The only trouble is he's already there.
Janie's son is her world, and it breaks her heart that he has nightmares. That he's terrified of water. That he sometimes pushes her away and screams that he wants his real mother. That it's getting worse and worse, and no one seems to be able to help.
In desperation, she turns to someone who might have an answer - but it may not be one she's ready to hear. It may also mean losing the one thing she loves more than anything: Noah.
A novel that spans life, death and everything in between, The Forgetting Time tells an unforgettable story - about Noah, about love, and, above all, about the things we hold on to when we have nothing else.
The storyline of this book has always been a huge interest of mine so when the cover caught my eye (in my local Tesco 😉) and I read what it was about I had to get it!
To start this book was told like 2 different stories, at first I didn’t understand why this was done in this way until a little later into the book, it didn’t take too long to understand why it was done in the way but just long enough to make you think and/or question why it was written like that.
This book gives you so much detail into the topic that it is based on and for me personally I didn’t have any questions that were left unanswered which defiantly does give this book plus points. 😊
For me it was also an emotional read, I honestly cannot imagine having a child that can remember a previous life, having another mother, another home and asking to go back to that life just must be heart-breaking! It was so emotional to read so to have to live through that must be awful I just cannot imagine!
The amount of detail this book goes into you can really tell that the author had done a lot of research to get the details/facts 100% correct. The story is fantastically written and is defiantly an amazing read!
And finally to finish off this review….. I am so happy I did pick this book up as it’s not my normal book, I am so glad the cover was so pretty that it caught my eye, I absolutely loved this and its one of them books I am keeping on my bookshelf as I know I will defiantly be reading this again in the future.
If you do get this book I hope you enjoy it and leave me a comment saying what you thought.
My rating is: ✮ ✮ ✮ ✮ ✮
Thank you for reading.
