An endearing story of discovery and transformation…
Emma Tupper is a dedicated lawyer with a bright future. But, shattered by her mother’s death, she fulfills her dying wish by embarking on a month-long trip to Africa. There she falls ill, and spends six months trapped in a remote village thanks to a devastating earthquake. On her eventual return home Emma discovers that her friends, boyfriend, and colleagues thought she was dead and that life has moved on without her.
As she struggles to recreate her old life, throwing herself into solving a big case for a client and trying to reclaim her beloved apartment from the handsome photographer who’s taken over her lease, everyone around her thinks she should take the opportunity to change. But is she willing to sacrifice the job, relationships and everything else she worked so hard to build?
Forgotten is the story of one young women’s life, broken down, reconstructed, and forever altered – a modern twist on the classic tale of discovering who we really are when everything that brings meaning to our lives is lost.
Forgotten is an enjoyably readable story.
Emma has been missing, presumed dead for six months, in which time her boyfriend has moved on, her apartment and been leased to Dominic and her job as a successful Lawyer is precarious.
I would have loved to have learned more of Emmas time in Africa, a trip paid for by her mother before her death, that has left Emma devastated. I feel that the story had much more potential and would have been more exciting if this had been taken into consideration.
However Catherine Mckenzies tale of love, life and opportunity gave me a couple of days of easy reading. It’s a little twee, but if romance and predictability are your ‘thing’ then this is the perfect read.
I would recommend this book as a holiday read, it’s one to just read and enjoy.
