"Forget Me Not is a moving tribute, written with candor and grace, that warms the heart and inspires the soul long after the last page is turned." - Greg Mortenson, author of Three Cups of Tea
Having suddenly lost her husband, Alex Lowe, in a tragic mountaineering accident, Jennifer Lowe struggled to hold her family together and deal with her grief. At the same time Alex's best friend, famed climber Conrad Anker, was dealing with the terrible loss as well as feelings of survivor's guilt. Jenni and Conrad gradually, and unexpectedly, found solace in one another.
Forget Me Not spans continents and tells the story of three people whose lives intertwine to a degree they could never have imagined. Jennifer Lowe-Anker is an artist whose often whimsical paintings are rendered in vivid color and rich texture inspired by her Montana upbringing.

    A gorgeous read.

    Laid bare on each page, Jennifer Lowe-Anker lets us into her world, into the world of Alex Lowe, the world of her children and family, and the world of Conrad Anker. I am equally impressed by her willingness to share the story as I am by her poignant writing. I found it to be a book that was all consuming, and as a story has everything that one could want from a book, adventure, love, joy, loss, and the struggle to find happiness. But its not a story, its her life, and theirs, and I felt honored that she was willing to share it. Her words are carried off the page, translated into visions and emotions which are easily seen and felt. It is amazing. Thank-you.

    Highly Recommended!

    This is an absolutely amazing book. I highly suggest it for anyone! It was written by the wife of a climber who died and left her to take care of three kids, and then she falls in love and gets married to his best friend. It's a story of Jennifer and Alex's lives together and how she moves on after his death.

    An unforgettable true life story.

    Jennifer and Alex are Montana people. They love the outdoors and fell in love quickly. Happily married with three sons, all is perfect even though Alex is frequently away from home climbing mountains. The book was written after he was killed in an avalanche. Fortunately, she had kept the many wonderful letters he had sent to her over the years. I have given the book as a gift.

    This memoir by Jennifer Lowe-Anker is a tribute to her late husb

    This memoir by Jennifer Lowe-Anker is a tribute to her late husband, Alex Lowe, considered by many to be one of the best climbers in the world at the time of his death. This is a love story and Jennifer shares their blossoming relationship, marriage, and family life with three sons in great detail. I couldn't help thinking what a wonderful gift this book is to her children. A climber herself, she understands her husband's deep need to push himself in the outdoors, but while motherhood calmed those urgings in herself, Alex was forever caught between his passion for the mountains and his deep love and loyalty to his family. While those on the outside may never understand this lifestyle, Jennifer shows what it means to love someone as they are, although she certainly wasn't always happy that he frequently spent months away from home. When Alex is lost in an avalanche on Shishapangma in 1999, she holds nothing back in sharing her grief, but also the healing. Her involvement with Conrad Anker, Alex's best friend and also a world-renowned climber, is also addressed. She and Conrad would marry and he would help raise Alex's sons. Perhaps only together could the two of them heal their grief over losing a man they both loved so much. I'm indebted to Ms. Lowe-Anker for sharing the stories of her life with Alex. His was a unique spirit, gone too soon.
