The Forgotten Hours

We rated this book:


On the subject of repressed memory, what is so incredibly horrible in our life if we submerge it into an alternate reality? Eagle Lake was the setting of an idyllic childhood with a best friend so in tune with the main character that they would be life-long best friends. The fact that the girl was from a poorer fractured family made them all the more close as they spent all of the time at the Eagle Lake house. The fracture in the friendship came as the girl accused the family’€™s father of statutory rape. Now, years later, the father will be released from prison to stay with his daughter. Can we ever really know our parents? Does our loyalty to them blind us to the monster that they could be? The reader will ponder these questions along with the main character who has a lovely life, but is uncertain of her future and her past. She is caught in limbo of knowing and not knowing.
