Description

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 pre-school 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.

  • Concept of Reincarnation

    The concept of reincarnation is very interesting and connected to “near-death experiences” which I believe do happen. An interesting book I read years ago, “At the Hour of Death” by Karlis Osis, PhD, offers some background for anyone interested in “life after death”. Is it a Christian belief that the soul gets transported to ‘Heaven’ where it may or may not be born again into another body? Interestingly in Sharon Guskin’s book, one of the main characters Dr. Jerome Anderson, travels to eastern countries such as Thailand, where Buddhism is predominate, to interview those who appear to have lived previous lives. He finds that this concept is more acceptable in eastern countries than in western countries. Sharon Guskin has written a compelling story based around a little boy, Noah, who remembers a previous life which takes us to Dr. Jerome Anderson, a Professor of Psychiatry. He has been studying and researching cases of reincarnation for years and is in the process of submitting his written reports for publication. His publisher is requesting an American case to round out his research. Dr. Anderson has a condition called Primary Progressive Aphasia which will eventually leave him without memory. After meeting Noah and his mother Janie, Dr. Anderson believes he has found his American case, but due to his illness, he only has limited time to complete his work and publish his findings. Sharon Guskin weaves her story around three families and how they interconnect and complete each other based on the concept of reincarnation. She writes a compelling story that one should read if you have an interest in this subject. Her book is based on previously documented research by scientists in the field of reincarnation.
