The Forgetting Time

“Gripping, deft, and moving.”
—The New York Times Book Review

“Bold, captivating…Guskin amps up the suspense while raising provocative questions about the maternal bond and its limits…you’ll be mesmerized.”
—People Magazine (Book of the Week)

“A great read―Guskin combines a thought-provoking idea with a well-written and compelling story that ensures readers will stay with it…Engaging and riveting. It will make you think about what really matters and how best to spend the time we have.”
—Vancouver Sun

“I love this book. It is absolutely spectacular. It’s a page-turner but also incredibly thought provoking. It left me completely changed―and isn’t that why we all read in first place? The Forgetting Time is a book you’ll want to talk about with all of your friends.”
―Octavia Spencer, Academy Award-winning actress
