A thousand ‘Forget-me-nots’ have lined my path. From adoption, babies, cancer, dating, depression, dogs, earthquake, escape, grandmas, kayaking, love, Olympics, politics, from superstition, war to weeping angels and many surprises in-between – these stories are part of me and part of the people who touched my life. During the time we spent together – sometimes only days or hours – we shared our experiences and memories. I remember them all, some with laughter and affection, others with sadness, but they live on in my heart. Wander a mile or two with me along the winding path of life, and let me share my stories.
Each story, thought or memory in this ‘Bouquet’ carries a message and all lend themselves to reading alone or in a group. They are independent of each other and surely incite discussion.
What people are saying:
Giselle Roeder broke barriers of personal pain in her memoir 'We Don’t Talk About That'. In this 'Bouquet of stories' she shares her thoughts about world events and tells of people who greatly influenced her. Each story makes you think and incites discussions. It includes several not to be missed surprises! - Barbara Lange, Winnipeg.
Giselle writes compelling stories. After reading her memoir - which I would place next to 'Anne Frank's Diary' - her present book is a delightful 'bouquet' of stories. I am still waiting for the sequel to 'We Don't Talk About That' and it seems that 'Forget Me Not' is somehow a bridge between the two. - Bob Pickles, UK History writer.
I really enjoy reading Giselle's stories. A change from her memoir. - Carol Dunaway, British Columbia, a voracious reader.
