Read full description of the books El otro hijo:Noah wants to go home. A seemingly easy request from most four year olds. But as Noah's single-mother, Janie, knows, nothing with Noah is ever easy. One day the pre-school office calls and says Janie needs to come in to talk about Noah, and no, not later, now - and life as she knows it stops.
For Jerome Anderson, life as he knows it has stopped. A deadly diagnosis has made him realize he is approaching the end of his life. His first thought - I'm not finished yet. Once a shining young star in academia, a graduate of Yale and Harvard, a professor of psychology, he threw it all away because of an obsession. Anderson became the laughing stock of his peers, but he didn't care - something had to be going on beyond what anyone could see or comprehend. He spent his life searching for that something else. And with Noah, he thinks he's found it.
Soon Noah, Janie and Anderson will find themselves knocking on the door of a mother whose son has been missing for seven years - and when that door opens, all of their questions will be answered.
Sharon Guskin has written a captivating, thought-provoking novel that explores what we regret in the end of our lives and hope for in the beginning, and everything in between. In equal parts a mystery and a testament to the profound connection between a child and parent, THE FORGETTING TIME marks the debut of a major new talent.
Advance Praise for THE FORGETTING TIME:
“When I wasn’t reading The Forgetting Time, I was itching to return to it. And when I was reading it, my mind was exploding with questions about what’s possible, what’s probable, and how our lives are caught between the two. Provocative, evocative, and fresh, Guskin’s book is an explosive debut.”
—Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author of LEAVING TIME
“Sharon Guskin’s debut is the literary equivalent of the sensation you get when, after stargazing from some hillside on a clear night, you’re suddenly hit with the terrifying and exhilarating scope of the unknowable. A truly remarkable, dizzying and exquisite page-turner.”
—Téa Obreht, New York Times bestselling author of THE TIGER’S WIFE
“What if what you did mattered more because life happened again and again, consequences unfolding across decades and continents? This question is at the heart of Sharon Guskin’s luminous novel. The Forgetting Time is about memory and forgetting, grieving and letting go, and the lengths a mother will go to for her child. It is both a relentlessly paced page-turner and a profound meditation on the meaning of life.”
—Christina Baker Kline, #1 New York Times bestselling author of THE ORPHAN TRAIN
“The Forgetting Time is a magical, wise, page-turner of a novel that brings to mind the early work of Alice Hoffman. I absolutely loved it. A very moving, soulful, and beautifully-made debut.”
—Dani Shapiro, bestselling author of DEVOTION
“A spellbinding ride. Guskin’s beautifully rendered and wonderfully told novel explores the mysteries of how we connect to one another in the deepest of ways. What an amazing book.”
—Mary Morris, author of THE JAZZ PALACE
"Irresistible...this clever, heartfelt book kept me turning pages long into the night."
--Kate Morton, New York Times Bestelling author of THE LAKE HOUSE
“Sharon Guskin has written a novel that’s meticulously crafted without ever losing the heart and soul of the story. It’s both a beautiful tale of the bond between a mother and her young son as well as a gripping mystery that asks that universal human question ‘were we here before?’ Reading The Forgetting Time becomes a personal journey as you try to remember all that you’ve forgotten.”
—Diane Chamberlain, New York Times bestselling author of THE SILENT SISTER
