Everything She Forgot
By: Lisa Ballantyne
Margaret Holloway, loving mother, dedicated teacher, has her life all squared away until she ends up caught in the middle of the worst traffic accident in the history of London. As gasoline and flames threaten to simultaneously suffocate and engulf her, Margaret is pulled free from her car with just seconds to spare by a strange man. Turning to thank this scarred hero for saving her life, Margaret finds that he has disappeared. As the days progress and Christmas draws near, Margaret manages to find her savior, in a coma in the hospital. Wrestling with the memories of the crash brings back fragmented memories from a year of her childhood that no wants or seems to be able to talk about. Holloway becomes convinced, that the only way to overcome her PTSD is to figure out the identity of this stranger whom she can’t be certain has nothing to do with the year she cannot remember.
