Release Day Spotlight: Nothing Forgotten by Jessica Levine

Publisher: She Writes Press
Pub. Date: April 10th, 2018
Pages: 256

When Anna, now living in California, is contacted by the Italian lover she knew decades before, she recalls their affair and the child she gave up for adoption. As the episode returns to haunt her―threatening the life she’s built, including her marriage―the story moves back in time to her youth in Europe.

Rome, 1979. Anna, twenty-two and living abroad, is involved with a man already engaged to be married. When she meets and befriends his fiancée, she is forced to confront the moral consequences of her actions. But an unexpected pregnancy, an anonymous letter, and threatening relatives complicate the picture. A novel in which an unconventional heroine, far from home, is forced to reckon with the judgment of others.

Praise for Nothing Forgotten

"Fans of Emma Straub, Anne Tyler, and Liane Moriarty will adore Levine’s treatment of domestic drama and how she brings light to the dusty corners of marriage and motherhood....an intricately layered, deeply heartfelt, and bittersweet novel."—Booklist, starred review

“…women’s fiction at its best….enjoyable, memorable, and thought-provoking all at once.”—Foreword Reviews

"This is a richly detailed story of passion and failure, deception and honesty, with anticipation and nostalgia. It is about making hard choices and living with those decisions, and the twisted ties that hold a family together."—Ann McCauley, StoryCircle Book Reviews

“If you’ve ever dreamed of having an Italian romance, Jessica Levine’s Nothing Forgotten is the next best thing . . . and maybe better . . .”—LAURA FRASER, author of An Italian Affair
