Product details

When I wasn't reading Sharon Guskin's The Forgetting Time, I was itching to return to it' Jodi Picoult Noah is four and wants to go home. The only trouble is he's already home. 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 onto when we have nothing else. 'An explosive debut' Jodi Picoult 'A beautiful tale of the bond between a mother and her young son as well as a gripping mystery' Diane Chamberlain 'Truly remarkable' Tea Obreht
