Featured Book: The Forgotten Ones

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and I'm hoping to feature a number of books in May dealing with mental health issues. I'm a day early, but I thought I would go ahead and tell you about this upcoming title. I LOVE this cover.

The Forgotten Ones by Laura Howard
Allison O'Malley's plan is to go to grad school so she can get a good job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She has carefully closed herself off from everything else, including a relationship with Ethan, who she's been in love with for as long as she can remember.

What is definitely not part of the plan is the return of her long-lost father, who claims he can bring Allison's mother back from the dark place her mind has gone. Allison doesn't trust her father, so why would she believe his stories about a long forgotten Irish people, the Tuatha de Danaan? But truths have a way of revealing themselves. Secrets will eventually surface. And Allison must learn to set aside her plan and work with her father if there is even a small chance it could restore her mother's sanity.

Praise for The Forgotten Ones:

I fell deeply in love with this book from the first moment I started reading it!

The descriptions Laura uses is amazing and I actually could feel myself there. 
~ Jodi at Goodreads

This book was superbly thought out and extremely creative with entwining of a fantasy realm unlike any other, with a modern day real world.

About the Author:

Laura Howard lives in New Hampshire with her husband and four children. Her obsession with books began at the age of 6 when she got her first library card. Nancy Drew, Sweet Valley High and other girly novels were routinely devoured in single sittings. Books took a backseat to diapers when she had her first child. It wasn’t until the release of a little novel called Twilight, 8 years later, that she rediscovered her love of fiction. Soon after, her own characters began to make themselves known. The Forgotten Ones is her first published novel.
