The Forgetting Time is about memory and forgetting, grieving and letting go, and the lengths a mother will go to for her child. It is both a relentlessly paced page-turner and a profound meditation on the meaning of life.” ―Christina Baker Kline,  New York Times bestselling author of The Orphan Train.

“Employing some new twists on the novelist’s technique of time travel, Andy Kutler sends a naval officer bombed at Pearl Harbor back to the Civil War. Among his comrades in a Union cavalry regiment he absorbs the enduring values of trust, loyalty, love, and selflessness during the chaos and tragedy of a war that took place a half century before he was born. The reader will find himself immersed in the story and captivated by the principal characters. ―James M. McPherson, Pulitzer Prize Recipient for Battle Cry of Freedom.

“Mitchard’s latest novel explores the fascinating question of those who have extraordinary gifts, what responsibility comes with those gifts, and where the line of morality falls between those poles. A thoughtful, sweeping read.” ―Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of Leaving Time.
