In case you didn’t know, or just plum forgot, The Forgotten Girl earned rave reviews when it was released in North America in 2017. Publishers Weekly (starred review) said, “… a paranormal thriller distinguished by subtle characterizations and emotionally evocative prose … Harvey’s compelling, moving search for Sally and the truth offers everything that fans of intelligent suspense could wish for.” And Booklist (starred review) enthused, “This is a smart thriller that also explores the power of love and memory. Highly recommended.”
And yet more praise:

Rio Youers writes with a magic all his own. The Forgotten Girl is a unique and twisted thriller, loaded with suspense but also laced with beautiful heartbreak.
