Unforgotten is a novella about love lost and found; a first person narrative, where sustained reflection blends with action to trace the hero’s journey through its many twists and turns. It carries the flavor of an age-old allegory about the artist grappling with his demons, internal and external, as he pines for his muse. Frederika Menezes has carefully painted a realistic setting for Ian, her central character, and has set in motion forces that drive him; from India to England, from home to office and to the mental hospital, to the writing desk, to the guitar, to the pain of loss of love, to the discovery of inspiration. Yet, the allegorical quality of the story is what lingers when the last page is turned. And yes, Goa finds place here too, a dream-like world which holds what is most vital, and never quite forgotten. –Isabel de Santa Rita Vas . Theatre promoter, youth mentor and former professor at Dhempe College.

An engaging love story. –Salil Chaturvedi . Poet and author

…now she has nothing but the storm to create a past with but then she had her love and her friends, and though they turned away, long before now, she can recall them in her mind, hear their voices and feel momentarily alive in the company that will always be with her but never a part of her life as once it was. Was she right? Ian took time to realize the intensity of his lost love, his first love. But when he did, Ian left no stone unturned to retrieve it. The tribulations that Ian goes through fortifies our belief that emotions and sentiments are the same, whether in Europe or in Asia; in Kent or in Goa.
