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.
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.
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.
