It begins in the small, affluent town of Fairview, Connecticut, where everything seems picture perfect.
Until one night when young Jenny Kramer is attacked at a local party. In the hours immediately after, she is given a controversial drug to medically erase her memory of the violent assault. But, in the weeks and months that follow, as she heals from her physical wounds, and with no factual recall of the attack, Jenny struggles with her raging emotional memory. Her father, Tom, becomes obsessed with his inability to find her attacker and seek justice while her mother, Charlotte, struggles to pretend this horrific event did not touch her carefully constructed world.
As Tom and Charlotte seek help for their daughter, the fault lines within their marriage and their close-knit community emerge from the shadows where they have been hidden for years, and the relentless quest to find the monster who invaded their town – or perhaps lives among them – drive this psychological thriller to a shocking and unexpected conclusion.
An Amazon Best Book of July 2016: Okay, I’m not going to sugar coat this—the first chapter is a doozy. You will read about a teenage girl named Jenny being attacked, and as you might expect it’s not a pretty picture. Now having said that, there’s a good chance that this chapter will be far less difficult than what probably just popped into your mind, so fear not and forge ahead. All Is Not Forgotten is narrated by the psychiatrist to whom the victim and her family turn when a controversial memory drug turns out to have unanticipated consequences. Over the course of the novel there are a myriad of secrets, dropped like bread crumbs by the one who hears them all. In this small, idyllic, Connecticut town there is plenty going on beneath the surface, particularly when it comes to the inner lives of the husbands and wives…Yes, there are a couple other brutal passages along the way but it’s worth wading through every one of them to reach the zinger at the end. –Seira Wilson, The Amazon Book Review

“With an exceptionally unreliable narrator and unique plot set-up, All Is Not Forgotten is a compelling, thought-provoking mystery that will have you looking at every therapist you know in a brand new light.” –Kimberly McCreight, author of WHERE THEY FOUND HER
“In the brutal, heart-pounding All Is Not Forgotten, memory cannot be trusted; when a girl is given “the treatment” to erase her memories of a vicious attack, a small town crumbles under the weight of its secret peccadilloes, dangerous alliances, and the question of what really happened that dark night. A fascinating and compelling novel.” –Miranda Beverly-Whittemore, author of BITTERSWEET
