Alex, the storyteller in Forget Me Not, unfurls the multicolored banner that is his family history. In vivid and rich narration, from his grandfather’s bull fighting ranch in Mexico and his father’s chiropractic education in Iowa, to his own search for self and the woman he cannot forget, Alex is both guide and lost soul.
Through three generations and across four continents, this tale of yearning, searching, loss and forgiveness grabs the reader on every level and yanks you through turmoil, depravity, tenderness and awakening. A late-night page turner, this is not a book you will soon forget.
“This book is not only for people who desire to live another life, but for people who want to feel inspired by those “blueprint breakers” who make it happen. Regardless of whether you move or not, this book will fill you with the power of possibility!”
“This is the story of an openly gay, recently married couple leaving the liberal crowd of merry old London for a conservative Muslim country. This is about as interesting as a context can get. Told in a very conversational and light tone, Jack takes you for a ride with him and Liam as they go through a series of interesting encounters. This book is full of entertaining narratives of real life experiences that will surely tickle your funny bones.”
