What you don’t remember can’t hurt you.
A thirty-year-old woman called Jane Dawn wakes in a hut surrounded by a snow-covered forest. She remembers nothing apart from her name, but strange echoes flicker about her mind; that once she flew, time was out of joint, and how she may be responsible for something terrible.
Jane is not alone, and the person with her knows far more than they are letting on.
The answers to the mystery of Jane's curious life will be found over many decades in this story of love, loss, memories, and mortality.
The three “Snow” books make up a trilogy with no beginning, middle or end. The stories can be read in any order you choose, but are all connected. Themes and ideas re-occur across the novels, characters re-appear in different ways. The 22nd of December is a crucial date and all three feature a strange box that is the key to secrets.
So, as you will discover, "The Gentle Art Of Forgetting" is neither a prequel to, nor sequel of the others. It is, in fact, both and neither. But what that means will only become clear once you’ve read the entire trilogy.
So come with Jane Dawn as she tries to remember who she is and finds out there may, after all, be a gentle art to forgetting…

“…most definitely a unique and unforgettable read…a beautiful blend of though provoking ideas that are conveyed with a wonderful illustrative vocabulary” - Brian Aird, Amazon
“…a compelling and deeply unique novel about love, loss, mortality, life, and so much more. However disparate this book seems at first glance, rest assured it’s done in a deliberate, intentional way…” Amy Williams, Amazon
“…engrossing, moving, infuriating and surprising by turns. I haven't ready anything quite like it before. Like life, there are moments of confusion, joy, grief, longing, love, shock and happiness.” Sandra Makower, Amazon
“This is a deeply beguiling work, hugely original, and a very compelling read; it sets up a baffling, other-worldly situation, and then leads the reader to a very satisfying, unforgettable resolution. Very highly recommended.” Peter Gwyn, Amazon"
