MFOB FEATURED BOOK: The Forgetting Time

What would you do if your four-year-old son claimed he had lived another life and that he wants to go back to his other mother? A single mom confronts the possibility that her troubled son is the reincarnated spirit of a murdered child. The only help comes from Dr. Anderson, who studies children who remember past lives—and who has problems of his own. Fearlessly provocative, Guskin’s debut combines a murder mystery and a sentimental story, while exploring the lengths we will go to for our children.
