Publisher's Summary

Noah wants to go home. A seemingly easy request from most four-year-olds. But as Noah's single mother, Janie, knows, nothing with Noah is ever easy. One day the preschool office calls and says Janie needs to come in to talk about Noah, and no, not later, now - and life as she knows it stops.
For Jerome Anderson, life as he knows it has stopped. A deadly diagnosis has made him realize he is approaching the end of his life. His first thought - I'm not finished yet. Once a shining young star in academia, a graduate of Yale and Harvard, a professor of psychology, he threw it all away because of an obsession. Anderson became the laughing stock of his peers, but he didn't care - something had to be going on beyond what anyone could see or comprehend. He spent his life searching for that something else. And with Noah, he thinks he's found it. Soon Noah, Janie, and Anderson will find themselves knocking on the door of a mother whose son has been missing for eight years - and when that door opens, all of their questions will be answered.
Sharon Guskin has written a captivating, thought-provoking novel that explores what we regret in the end of our lives and hope for in the beginning and everything in between. In equal parts a mystery and a testament to the profound connection between a child and parent, The Forgetting Time marks the debut of a major new talent. The program features an interview with the author.

Not as Great as I anticipated

I'm still trying to figure out why this book has gotten 4 1/2 stars from so many listeners. This book has got a great idea and parts of the story are really great but to much of the book was drug out. Anderson had an important part but I think the book would have been just as great without all of his story put in it.
This book could have been much better if tweaked a bit more.
The conversation between Denise and Pauly at the end was by far my favorite part. What a beautiful lesson learned about forgiveness and how we heal by forgiving.

Just Read It

Previous reviews told too much, so that I knew where it was going. But, even just having said that, the story really captured my feel for humanity's journey, and I so much enjoyed the suspense as I rooted for the success of each and every character.
