Overview

For April Sullivan-LaMonica, the last ten years have been hell: her husband and young son were killed in a car accident, and soon after, her mom descended into the darkness of Alzheimer's. So when broadcast journalist Maggie Prescott shows up claiming to be April's half sister and tries to capture their reunion on film, April outwardly regards Maggie with much suspicion. In reality, she's simply afraid to grow close to someone again, only to have that person leave--or worse.

Maggie, meanwhile, is battling her own demons: figuring out why her biological mother gave her up, facing a secret she's kept from the one man she's loved all her life, and giving herself permission to follow the dream she's had since she was a child.

Separated by nearly two decades and radically different life paths, April and Maggie must decide if pursuing their sisterhood is worth it...or even possible.

A story of loss, love, survival, and redemption, Forgotten April will speak to anyone who's experienced the pains--and riches--of an unexpected friendship that emerges from family ties.

I'm usually a Sci-Fi/Fantasy fan but this was recommended and was cheap so I thought I'd check it out. I really didn't want to put it down until it was over, and even now I want to know what happens next. Good, believable characters with interesting stories that all intertwine without seeming too coincidental to swallow. The writing style is in first person but switches between all the main characters by chapter so the same scenes are sometimes repeated from different perspectives. It took a bit of getting used to but I found I liked it by the end. Excellent beach book, engrossing without being too convoluted to follow if you have to put it down for a few days.

I thought this book wasn't a easy read and I got a little confused (but I get confused a lot anyways lol ) .This story kinda bounces around but other than that this was a good read. Storyline and characters were great. This is not the usual kind of book I would read but it was very good.

Though not the easiest read ( it bounces around a lot) the character development was superb and the story line rang with truth and realism. This book was well worth the time it took to read. The story thread - old and new relationships - takes us through the emotional rollercoaster of dealing with Alzheimers, old & new relationships, family dynamics, loss, and letting go. Definitely not the usual "romance" pap, and definitely worth the read. Well Done!
