Bill Landay, New York Times bestselling author of Saving Jacob
“As fictional characters go, Katie Gregory seems not so much imagined as compelled into being by the unique forces of the times—the perfect envoy to accompany you into the red hot cauldron of accused and accuser. That Katie is neither of these, but bound by love to both, makes her conflict the more gut-wrenching, and the possibilities the more terrifying. Add to this Schumann's gift for knowing—and conjuring—her character's heart, and you have a story that makes you feel it's your heart at risk, your life on the line. You may lose track of these hours, but you won't forget them.”
Tim Johnston, New York Times bestselling author of Descent
“THE FORGOTTEN HOURS poses a super-timely question: in a #MeToosituation, who would you side with, your accused family member or your best friend, the accuser? A relevant, compelling, and compassionate look at the torture of conflicted loyalties and the slipperiness of truth."
Jenna Blum, New York Times bestselling author of Those Who Save Us and The Lost Family
With an elegance of style surprising in a first novel, Schumann shows how, in seeking truth about the past, the most treacherous secrets are those we keep from ourselves.
Carol Anshaw, New York Times bestselling author of Carry the One
“The Forgotten Hours is a wise reminder that 'coming of age' stories aren't only for the very young. Katie Gregory's need to confront her own youthful beliefs and desires is something familiar —and compelling— to us all. There is so much insight in these pages, so much compassion, all woven into a mystery I couldn't put down.”
Robin Black, author of Life Drawing and If I Loved You, I Would Tell You This
“The Forgotten Hours asks important questions about memory, adolescent understanding, the age of consent, and what men have gotten away with since time immemorial. Katrin Schumann has crafted a powerful tale for the #MeToo era which should resonate far beyond this cultural moment."
Miranda Beverly-Whittemore, New York Times bestselling author of Bittersweet and June
“The Forgotten Hours is a stunning novel about trauma and shame, loyalty and truth. Ten years after an alleged crime destroyed her family, Katie Gregory returns to an abandoned cabin she prefers to forget. As memories of her last evening there bring conflicting emotions, she struggles to rediscover her ability to trust and her faith in love. Was her father guilty of the assault for which he was convicted? What part did she play in events of that night, and can she move beyond her own guilt? Trying to unravel the answers before the heart-pounding finish will keep readers up way past bedtime. A must-read for book clubs.”
Barbara Claypole White, bestselling author of The Perfect Son and The Promise Between Us
“For me, the best indicator of a good book is when you're thinking about the characters even when you aren't reading, and wondering what's going to happen to them. This was definitely the case with The Forgotten Hours. I thoroughly enjoyed this well-written, compelling story.”
Marybeth Mayhew Whalen, bestselling author of When We Were Worthy and cofounder of She Reads
