Ruth awakens after an accident and finds herself on a boat in a cove. She is cared for by Ben, who, like Ruth, is from Belfast. At first, Ruth has no recollection of her past life. However, as memories gradually filter in, she wonders if Ben is who he claims to be and whether he can be trusted. 'I know that the sea is clear, it has no colour. With the guile of a chameleon, it reflects back the weather and landscape. Like the sea, my mind is clear.' 'Carol Jones' outstandingly well-written first novel so brilliantly conveys Ruth's devastating memory loss and unusual situation, but it was my growing suspicion that recovery might lead to something even worse that kept me turning page after page.' - James Ferron Anderson, award-winning author of The River And The Sea...

Forget Me Not Reviews
This is a great read. I loved the way the story unfolded, slowly at first then it gathered pace at the end. The characters are very credible and the dialogue naturalistic but it was the descriptions of the setting by the sea that stood out for me. I really felt I was living in that boat at times. Highly recommended.
Forget me Not is deceptively straightforwardly told, but what we are learning has nothing straightforward about it. Ruth’s world is concealed from her, and we discover it with her. I read on, pleased at first about every friendship made, every little nugget of information about her past gained. Subtly a feeling of wariness grew. Maybe, just maybe, these gains have another side. This is a novel that from the first lines left me feeling I was in the hands of an assured story-teller. So few novels have that. I wasn’t disappointed, for the dénouement is worthy of the build-up. Is it delivered to us a little hurriedly? Perhaps I just wanted to spend more time with Ruth, Ben, Rory and Annie.Not just a wonderful first novel, but a wonderful novel.
I really loved this book and it's characters. I found it easy to read and it was a great story line. Also loved the descriptions of various places. I have now passed this book over to my Mom as I think she would love this great read.
This is a wonderful book! I easily connected with the characters, and enjoyed the unknown. As with most good books I read, I still think about it long after I finished reading it....Thanks so much to goodreads for the free copy!
I received my copy from good reads giveaway. This is a great read. I loved the way the story unfolded, slowly at first then it gathered pace at the end. Highly recommended.
I couldn't even finish this book. Being in the main character's head for chapters upon chapters of her rambling on about the same thoughts over and over again was just dreary. There was absolutely no interest for me in the main plot - the main character has amnesia, what's in her back story, who knows, and frankly, this book didn't make me care - or the main character, and I didn't want to waste any more of my time reading it.
