This tells the story of one man gifted with perfect recall, but it is a love story, a story of hope, the healing power of love.
Within a small enclave, many possess blessings. Whether a witch's talent as outsiders think, or a gift with weather or animals or healing, they are all considered blessings. With his gift, Rex can recall every happy moment in his life, exactly as it happened.
He meets Evelyn, gifted with life, and they fall in love as a perfect match. Few people under 65 remember the uncertainty caused by the draft at the height of the Vietnamese war. The flight by some to Canada, the boys who left, proud to serve their country, the broken men who returned. The nightly news, lists of dead. I do. I dated returning vets at college. So this story touched me. Em captures the tension and the helplessness of the times. The sweetness, naivete of young love before the war touches this family.
Rex remembers, every soul he killed or watch die, every atrocity of war. The memory of good is overcome by memories of war. But Evelyn is waiting.
In just a few short lines you are pulled into the story as if you are personally experiencing the theme, setting and characters. The author has a way with words that enables you to become submerged in a different place and time. The book includes magic, pain, great joy, loyalty and devoted ever binding love.
While reading the book I was able to see resemblances between Evelyn and Tallulah. Evelyn is about the same age as Tallulah in Em Shotwell's novel "Blackbird Summer". In both books they have been matched with their perfect match according to their family...but is it really perfect for them?
The audience will appreciate the tact that was taken when writing about the Vietnam War. The letters written between the characters enhance the authenticity of the storyline. Many veterans returned home with aftereffects from the war. These repercussions effect the veterans, their family members and friends. The author did a great job at portraying some of the aftereffects caused by war.
This entrancing nove is about love and war through the lives of the Caibre family. A family who are outcast in their small town of Brooklyn, Mississippi. Even though they are outcast this amazing novel reveals the honest truth behind true love. Em's novel titled "Forget Me Not" will surely not be forgotten. I can't wait to see where she takes us next with the Caibre family.
Thank you City Owl for the ARC copy of Forget Me Not.
Usually, I find novellas lacking, but Em Shotwell tells a perfect love story from beginning to end!
Thank you, City Owl Press, for an advanced copy!
