All Is Not Forgotten by Wendy Walker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was such a great psychological suspense novel! I'm not a huge suspense reader but this may be among one of the best I've read. The stories exploration of memory is simply fascinating. The interplay between the characters gives this novel something really special. The story being 'told' by the therapist working with the main character (Jenny) and her family was an interesting and strong choice. I think it made the overall effectiveness of this novel much better.
The story revolves around a rape and how the victim is given medication to lost all memories of that experience. The novel explores how that medication didn't actually remove the memories and the story. The therapist works with the family and the victim to make sense of things.
But the novel is so much more than just that and there are a number of surprises. This definitely is a psychological suspense novel ... but so much more. I highly recommend it and don't want to say much more so you don't get the story spoiled for you. This one is best read with little information.
