About the Book

Coming across a dusty book in her bookcase one day, the author remembers a tale she should never have forgotten. A legend, yet not a tale of heroic deeds. One has an inauspicious start: eight-year-old Ida lives in a fairy-tale village encircled by glacier peaks. It is a village where crystal clear waters burst forth from underground springs; it is a village shaded by misty skies. Her entire world changes one day when she does something she shouldn’t have: she picks a snow tulip, despite the flower’s insistence that she will die away from her soil. Suddenly, the path vanishes as Ida finds herself on a journey leading to unknown. Soon a shepherd tells her the prophecy about the snow tulip: that if this unique flower is ever picked, it must be replanted back in its soil by the person who picked it in the first place or that person remains lost forever. Ida’s journey continues as she finds herself stepping into magical worlds she’d never known, which are unlike anything she’d ever imagined. Will Ida ever find her way back home? Forget Me Not is a magical journey of self-discovery; it is a tale about healing and affection instead of hurting. It is a story about one simple truth: mind your true essence within, and dream on. “Neither she, nor I have stayed as we once were. That is precisely why I had to recollect this tale.” “Don’t forget,” said the tulip softly, “nothing happens unless you dream of it.” With dazzling use of language and boundless imagination, this beautifully written story breathes and leaves its mark on the heart and soul of anyone who crosses its path.
