A good story about the impact one special person can have on a community, and the rippling effects and consequences of our choices. Set in East Texas, Eve (a bit of an obvious biblical reference) appears as if from nowhere, although actually an escapee from a human trafficking group. Good story! ( )

The Unremembered Girl tells the story of a family who comes across a feral girl living i the woods near their house in a small town in Texas. The mother, with the help of her son, invite the girl into their home to take care of her. There's also the added element of a group of people whose mysterious comings and goings at a nearby shack. It becomes clear that the girl is somehow connected to the people in the shack.

The story is full of family conflict, tragedy, loss and atonement. The characters were well rounded and the story maintained my interest right from the very beginning..

My only complaint is that about 2/3 of the way through the book, following a significant event, I felt the story began to take a bit of a melodramatic turn that I didn't care for. By this time, we knew the girl's story and the combination of these two factors seemed to lead to the story losing its way.

Despite this, a very good story and a worthwhile read. ( )
