When Margaret Holloway is trapped in her car after an accident, she is rescued by a stranger. As she recovers, Margaret is determined to find the man that saved her life. She is also unsettled after the incident and feels that there are lost memories from her childhood that she needs to recall. Interspersed with Margaret's contemporary story is one from 1985 that that features a man named George, who wants to reunite with his seven-year-old daughter, Moll, whom he hasn't seen since she was born. As the novel progresses, it slowly becomes clear how the two stories are connected. Everything She Forgot is a page-turner for those who like psychological, character-centered novels and is a great read-alike for Erin Kelly.
