Does the heart never really forget?
When Ava’s partner Will is diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor, the doctors give Will one chance to survive - an operation which means he will lose his recent memory. Ava begs him to take the chance, sure that she can cope with Will forgetting her. After all, they have something very special to live for.
But they are also keeping a heart-breaking secret, and if Will loses his memory, Ava will have to carry that secret alone.
Can they rebuild their love from scratch or will their secrets and past come between them? Will Ava really be a stranger when Will wakes up – or does the heart never really forget…
Giselle Green returns with a heart-breaking, deeply moving story of love, loss, and what it really means to be alive. Perfect for all fans of Jodi Picoult, Susan Lewis, and Diane Chamberlain.

Would you lie to someone if they begged you too? Would you be able to carry the burden of the lie if your partner would never be able to remember that again? 

That is the life facing Ava and her partner Will after they found out he had a deadly brain tumor, he has simply two choices, give in to the tumor and die or have a life-saving operation but lose all your memories for the past several years and forget a painful memory. So in order to keep Will alive, Ava agrees, but that also means that he forgets Ava too, can they rebuild their life together? Or will the secret be too much? 

The Girl You Forgot is such a heartbreaking tale, that will reduce you to a complete emotional mess, but it’s totally worth it! Will and Ava’s characters were very well written and you can’t help but have compassion for them both and honestly become heavily invested in their story from the prologue. 

Giselle Green is a new to me author, but one that I will read again. I found her book to be refreshing, the “out of the ordinary” love story that I have never read before and is honestly a very welcome change. 

I give The Girl You Forgot 5 stars

Giselle Green is an award-winning, bestselling contemporary women's fiction author. Mum to six boys (half of whom have flown the nest) and owner of one bright orange-and-cinnamon canary who hopefully never will, Giselle enjoys creating emotionally-gripping storylines about family and relationships.
