A woman’s worst nightmare turns into an opportunity for freedom for Maggie Anderson. Her spirit has been crushed by an abusive boyfriend and when a carjacking provides her with an escape, Maggie grabs it and finds herself in the small town of Clayburn, Kansas.
Clayburn is a close knit town but its inhabitants have their own struggles especially grieving widower, Trevor Ashlock and the kindhearted Bart and Wren Johanssen, owners of Wren’s Nest B & B. Maggie is welcomed by these people but will she ever find a home when the truth of her deception is revealed?
Deborah Raney has written a compelling story of Maggie’s efforts to escape her broken past as she struggles with fear and anxiety trying to create a life she feels is undeserved. The pacing of the book is gentle and the story develops slowly creating a small town feel and contrasting with Maggie’s frantic city life. Trevor’s grief is palpable and the growth of both main characters is authentic and moving.
Remember to Forget is a beautiful story of friendship, hope and love and is highly recommended. I am looking forward to the release of the sequel, Leaving November, which releases in March, 2008 from Howard Books/Simon & Schuster.
