Fiction by Catherine McKenzie.
The main character of this book goes on a trip to a small fictional country in Africa after the death of her mother. She had planned for a month-long vacation, but illness and natural disaster happened, and she was out of contact with everyone she knew at home for six months. When she finally was able to come home, she discovered that everyone had thought she was dead.
Hence the title: She'd been "forgotten." See?
This was a good premise for a story, and this novel kept my interest. Although I would have liked for the author to have taken more time with the beginning and background in order to make the character more in-depth, I enjoyed this book as a light and fun read.
