HASH(0x933b1828) out of 5 stars bought it for the setting, loved it for the story 21 Oct. 2011
By Glenda G W North - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Unlike the previous reviewer, I've never met the author. But I feel like I went to school with her protagonist, and lived in that home town. Her characters are flawed, caring, snarky, superficial, kind, lazy, ambitious, giving, self-reliant, self-centered, brave, and liars -- in other words, they are carefully drawn and multi-faceted -- real people. The story carried me on like a swift-running creek, with something new just around each bend. Highly recommended.

BTW I read this on Kindle, and only found ONE typo in the whole book! Kudos to the editor/proofreader, as well as the author for caring about quality.

HASH(0x933b1558) out of 5 stars A TOUCHING STORY WONDERFULLY WRITTEN 30 Sept. 2011
By Elizabeth Lyon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
First, a disclosure: I am a long-time friend of the author and I am in her dedication for this book. I am also a freelance book editor of over 20 years, unable to dismiss the urge to criticize or edit everything I read.

This is a special book, wonderfully written.

Few things can make Elizabeth Roarke's life worse: Ben, her childhood best friend and presumed husband to be, is MIA in Vietnam, and a strange and unknown girl, April, flashes an engagement ring saying he proposed mere hours before his deployment. In A Forgetting Place, Carolyn J. Rose, author of An Uncertain Refuge, writes another stirring novel where nothing is as expected, for Elizabeth or for the reader. Her journey is our journey--fleeing from and fleeing toward change; fleeing from heartbreak toward impossible dreams; and fleeing from the ties that bind toward friendships freely chosen.

When her car and money are stolen, Elizabeth is stranded atop Stony Ridge, Arkansas, far from her safe, small-town life in Maplekill, New York. She must rely upon the taciturn good will of Delia, a spurned, now widowed, black woman left with a hardscrabble life on land that the good old boys might yank from under her. While starting her life anew as a reporter for a nearby town paper, Elizabeth grieves her loss of Ben. She plunges again and again into doubt and self-criticism, combing through memories that reveal no hint of anything but their love for one another.

When nature unleashes a storm with impartial fury, Delia taps into a greater, if not mysterious realm, foreseeing two lives in danger. Pitted against unforgiving outer and inner landscapes, Elizabeth and Delia join together, bringing out the best in one another, and meeting a future beyond all hopes and dreams.

Carolyn J. Rose is so gifted at bringing her characters to life. You feel like you know them, hurt with them, cry with them, love with them. I am purchasing a number of copies for Christmas gifts. A PLACE OF FORGETTING will definitely be among my top 10 reads of 2011.

HASH(0x933b199c) out of 5 stars a gem of a book 2 Nov. 2011
By David E. Cournoyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The download of this book was originally for my wife who enjoyed and recommended it to me. She was right this is a little gem of a book. There are characters to love, characters to hate, and a believable world filled with entertaining surprises. The writing is smooth and easy and the plot zips along. Carolyn Rose seems to get better with every book.

HASH(0x933b19fc) out of 5 stars A Place of Forgetting by Carolyn J. Rose... 23 Nov. 2011
By HollisBookShelf - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
April and Liz seem to be in love with the same man and he is missing in Vietnam. But what is the real truth? Maybe the psychic knows....

When Liz decides to run away from home, April hides in her car and persuades her to give her a ride to the psychic's house. If things weren't already bad enough for Liz, things steadily get worse. Her car, money and clothes get stolen and she is left on the mountaintop with Delia, a lady she has just met.

Thru the twists and turns, love and betrayal, Liz learns to trust again.

I really liked this book. The story line was well written and had fantastic characters. Definitely a book I will pass along to my family and friends.

FTC Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the author hoping I would review it.
