Publisher's Summary

In a society that loses its collective memory, one girl remembers everything.
The beloved author of Rook, Sharon Cameron, takes listeners by storm with her brilliant foray into science fiction.
Seventeen-year-old Nadia lives in Canaan, a quiet city in an idyllic world, hemmed in by high walls that are constructed of a material no one in her town recognizes. Every 12 years the people of Canaan undergo a collective Forgetting; in the days before, the town devolves into a chaos of bloody violence, and afterward the people are left without any trace of memory of themselves, their families, their lives.
Nadia has never forgotten, however. As the next Forgetting approaches, Nadia is determined to find out what causes it and whether there is any way to stop it. With the help of Gray, the glassblower's handsome son, she discovers that there is a devious plot afoot, one that keeps the people of Canaan permanently subdued. Will Nadia be able to solve the mystery before the people forget the truth? And before Gray forgets her?
A remarkable story of memory and loss, love and indomitable courage.

Beautiful Singular Story

A self contained masterpiece both in writing and narrative. Unique and haunting. Sci fi , fantasy, and romance well blended into the newest idea I've read in a long time.

a wonderful listen

the narrator did a wonderful job with differentiating between characters, putting emotion and growth into the main character, and making the story feel complete. the story itself is not what I expected. Sharon Cameron has done it again. Her ability to manipulate and mingle the setting of the book with the world we know and making something fantastic and unexpected is amazing. A step further this time, compared to Rook, and I enjoyed it all. trying to figure things out as the characters themselves were added to the surprise. I can't wait for more from Ms. Cameron.
