Summary

She had to step outside and hold the paper up to the moonlight to read it, but when she was able to make out the words, her heart felt as if it would drop right out of her chest. Because, the message was in German.

1944, London. When Lily meets enigmatic GI Matthew in war-torn London, she doesn’t expect to fall in love. While her sister starts a reckless affair with another GI, Lily tries to hide her growing feelings for Matthew. But Matthew has a devastating secret. One that could change their lives forever.

Present day, USA. Abby lives a quiet life on an apple farm in Wisconsin. Tormented by survivor’s guilt after the tragic deaths of her mother and brother, Abby leaves the orchards as little as possible, keeping her life small, peaceful and safe...until she is contacted by Englishman Simon Elliot, who arrives nursing a heartbreak of his own, and bearing a World War Two medal that he claims belonged to Abby’s grandfather.

Together, they begin to piece together the heartbreaking story of their relatives’ war. But as the story brings Abby and Simon closer - tentatively beginning to lean on one another to heal - they uncover a dark secret from the past.

And like Lily and Matthew nearly 80 years before them, it will make Abby and Simon question whether you can ever truly trust someone, even when they have your heart.

A heartbreakingly powerful, epic love story about courage, friendship, and broken trusts, The Forgotten Heart is an unforgettable story perfect for fans of Nora Roberts, Kristin Hannah, and The Notebook.

Happy/sad

Parts of this story bought tears to my eyes. Other parts made me smile. The narrator was okay but not perfect. I will be looking for another audio book by this author.
