Genre: Literary Fiction | Mystery

Published in the UK as: Redemption Road

Lisa Ballantyne, international bestselling author of The Guilty One, delivers a compelling domestic thriller with impeccably observed characters and masterful edge-of-your-seat storytelling in a novel that leaps between past and present with page-turning finesse

They’re calling it the worst pile-up in London history. Driving home, Margaret Holloway has her mind elsewhere—on a troubled student, her daughter’s acting class, the next day’s meeting—when she’s rear-ended and trapped in the wreckage. Just as she begins to panic, a disfigured stranger pulls her from the car just seconds before it’s engulfed in flames. Then he simply disappears.

Though she escapes with minor injuries, Margaret feels that something’s wrong. She’s having trouble concentrating. Her emotions are running wild. More than that, flashbacks to the crash are also dredging up lost associations from her childhood, fragments of events that were wiped from her memory. Whatever happened, she didn’t merely forget—she chose to forget. And somehow, Margaret knows deep down that it’s got something to do with the man who saved her life.

As Margaret uncovers a mystery with chilling implications for her family and her very identity, Everything She Forgot winds through a riveting dual narrative and asks the question: How far would you go to hide the truth—from yourself…?




Whatever you think EVERYTHING SHE FORGOT by Lisa Ballantyne is about, abandon those notions because this isn't what you expect this to be. It IS more than a car pile-up, it IS more than Margaret's accident, and the stuff she uncovered and remembered IS devastating.

And it's also so so heartbreaking. 


I wish I can say more but I'll be spoiling the sheer touching awesomeness of EVERYTHING SHE FORGOT. The dual POV style brilliantly brought the real story to life. We go back to the past when Margaret spent some... unexpected time with her father, meanwhile in the present, she's dealing with trauma from the car accident and is understandably drawn to the scarred stranger who helped her get out of her car just in time before it got blown to bits. 

As Margaret heals, more and more pieces from her past, EVERYTHING SHE FORGOT, slowly came back to the forefront. And when past finally met present... OMG! Prep the tissues because the tears are sure to follow. It's so sad, beautiful, tragic, touching, upsetting, stupid, gah! So emotionally polarizing but in a good way. 

Do yourself a favor and read EVERYTHING SHE FORGOT. It's one heck of an experience that I can't wait for y'all to partake in.
