Does the heart never really forget?
When Ava’s partner Will is diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour, the doctors give Will one chance to survive – an operation which means he will lose his recent memory. Ava begs him to take the chance, sure that she can cope with Will forgetting her. After all, they have something very special to live for.
But they are also keeping a heart-breaking secret, and if Will loses his memory, Ava will have to carry that secret alone.
Can they rebuild their love from scratch or will their secrets and past come between them? Will Ava really be a stranger when Will wakes up – or does the heart never really forget…
Giselle Green returns with a heart-breaking, deeply moving story of love, loss, and what it really means to be alive. Perfect for all fans of Jodi Picoult, Susan Lewis and Diane Chamberlain.
The Girl You Forgot is my first read from Giselle Green. The plot line of this novel is wonderful. An impossible situation that I would definitely not want to be in.
It’s best I don’t go into details. The reqard of reading this book is best when going in relatively blind. This story is a super emotional rollercoaster. Watching these two characters attempt to rebuild their relationship while there are these secrets lurking is really compelling. I could feel the pain and grief.
I love the dual perspective. I think it let’s us get to know each character and how they are managing during this difficult situation. The emotional component is wonderfully written.
Overall, I am very impressed. I really enjoyed this one and look forward to more from this author.
