The Forgetting Time by Sharon Gaskin
This novel has some connection to true events that are woven loosely throughout the novel. The premise of the book is that small children are the link to reincarnation.
Jamie, a single mother of a young boy Noah, is caught in a situation where her son has terrible nightmares and acts out in ways that are unbelievable. After taking him to a myriad of doctors, she finally hears about children who relate stories about other lives. In her search for answers, Jamie encounters Jerome Anderson, a research doctor diagnosed with early onset aphasia, and Denise, the broken mother mourning the murder of her son.
The novel weaves three stories where all of the major characters are connected.
For an author's first novel, readers thought the book was amazing. The grief of the mother was palpable at times. The description was vivid and brought the reader into the scene.
