This is a truly stunning piece of work. Much of its mastery and punch lies in the fact that while each story is barely linked, the portrait of women's lives in Kamchatka work together to create a deeply moving novel about love, family, and the someti ...more

“It turns out that no one believes her anyway, and that lack of belief in her festers, infects her through and through—because, in her heart, she wants to be an honest person, and she thought she was. But she is not fully honest with anyone, not even with herself. It turns out she cannot give voice to uncertainty; this is not allowed. She does not need to be told this to know it is true. So she becomes quiet; she continues her journey inward, a journey she will be on for years, alone, unable to share with anyone, not her family, not her friends, not her lover.”
Katrin Schumann, The Forgotten Hours

“But she had not been tempted to look him up back then. She’d become accustomed to the sense of herself as separate from all others, and there was something comforting about that. It was best to keep the past just out of reach, hovering a little more than arm’s length away. While she knew it was there, could sense it, she carefully kept those memories out of her grasp, and she sometimes seemed to forget the past entirely. But that was an illusion. Her memories of Jack, of Lulu—of life before—were not actually gone and forgotten; they lived on inside her, shadows of a bleached-out stain.”
Katrin Schumann, The Forgotten Hours

“People thought whatever they thought. There was no changing people’s minds now.”
Katrin Schumann, The Forgotten Hours
