"Some things are better left forgotten . . . When a woman wakes up with amnesia beside a mountain highway, confused and alone, she fights to regain her identity, only to learn that her parents have disappeared--not long after her mother bought a winning $47 million lottery ticket. As her memories painfully resurface and the police uncover details of her parents' mysterious disappearance, Cleo Li finds herself under increasing suspicion. Even with the unwavering support of her brother, she can't quite reconcile her fears with reality or keep the harrowing nightmares at bay. As Cleo delves deeper for the truth, she cannot escape the nagging sense that maybe the person she should be afraid of...is herself. With jolting revelations and taut ambiguity, In the Dark We Forget vividly examines the complexities of family--and the lies we tell ourselves in order to survive."--… (mais)

Wow! This was so good that I couldn't put it down and had to keep reading until the end. This examination of family and memory will keep you guessing until the end. A thoroughly satisfying roller-coaster of a read!

Thanks to HarperCollins for access to a digital ARC on Netgalley.com. ( )

When a young woman is found beaten and abandoned on the side of the road, it is discovered that she is suffering from amnesia. As the story unfolds, her brother, Cass Li, helps Cleo remember her life prior to the attack. Both their parents are missing, and Cleo becomes a suspect in their disappearance. When it is revealed that Cleo and Cass's mother was the sole winner of the Canada lottery $47 million prize, a motive is established.
I thought this was good, but a bit too long. The case wraps up nicely at the end, but it is just a few paragraphs after such a long and involved story. ( )

That is not how I was expecting that book would end! This was fast-paced and kept me guessing throughout.

I totally thought I had the ending figured out but Sandra Wong surprised me. Looking forward to reading more of Sandra's books in the future. ( )

Intellectually stimulating, explosive, Compelling, griping, exhilarating & intense! This story brought out all the feels & the emotions! On top of all that this phenomenal Asian Canadian author has had the courage to write about many topics that need much more light shed on them, due to the general public's lack of knowledge (with knowledge comes not only understanding but hopefully compassion, caring & acceptance) so I for one thank you Sandra!
In the dark we forget, is this a reference to what Cleo's mother did to her, how her father was to afraid to stop it? The behind closed doors and all deal? Or subjectively could this be in reference to how we as a society treat people who have emigrated to Canada? (and I'm ashamed that this is true I wish with all my heart that it were not) I would love to sit down with Sandra SG Wong and ask her about the title of the book because it's the first thing that drew me in, but then her amazing, flowing, dramatic, precise writing style hooked me in chapter one and boy did I hang on with everything that I had right till the end of the epilog!
I absolutely loved the issues that were brought up in this book such as the way Asian Canadians are treated and or looked upon in society (which is disgraceful), how the female children are treated in an Asian family (I can't imagine how damaging that must be to self esteem & mental health) LGBTQIA issues in general are an iffy topic because it's hard not to offend people and I think this author had to be brave to write about how the Asian community reacted years ago as well as how they react now and it was brilliant to show both sides of how that made the siblings in this story feel, what it was like being disowned also how hard it was to explain not having your parents at your wedding. There were a lot of twists & turns in the story that were shocking, dramatic & heart wrenching and of course I just wanted more more more. I would recommend this book to anyone who dislikes injustice, prejudice or racism that enjoys a good on the edge of your seat mystery or psychological thriller. I sincerely thank @NetGalley, @HarperCollinsCa and @S_G_Wong for THE ARC of this fantastic book.
