The Memory Box Summary


The Memory Box by Margaret Forster

Catherine's mother died when Catherine was just a baby girl, leaving nothing but her perfect reputation to live up to. Or so she thought. But then Catherine finds a box addressed to her, filled with objects seemingly without meaning - three feathers, an exotic seashell, a painting, a mirror, two prints, an address book, a map, a hat, a rucksack and a necklace. And while she's busy playing detective trying to find out who her mother was, she finds out more about herself than she ever really wanted to know. Secrets are discovered, truths uncovered, and Catherine realises that maybe there was something more to her mother, something that her familiy has kept from her. How long a shadow can a dead woman cast?

The Memory Box Reviews


"Moving, thought-provoking and utterly compelling, this novel is Margaret Forster at her very best" * Daily Mail *
"Like memory itself, it is subtle, full of secrets, and it lingers" * Independent *
"A compulsive read, beautifully written... with the same talent she displayed so brilliantly in Hidden Lives" * Sunday Express *
"Deft, unusual and very readable... Margaret Forster has again written a vivid and compulsive novel" * Financial Times *
