VOID VOID by David M. Staniforth
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After reading this book I ponder the fact that maybe we all have a little VOID in our lives. As we get older we tend to forget parts of our lives….especially names in my case. But to go through life not remembering the first 20 years of your life is more than anyone should have to go through. And so is the case with Tom…..whose last name became Gardener when he took on the job of tending to Pauline’s garden because he does not remember his last name.

The story goes on to tell of Tom’s life and his yearly visit every January to places unknown to him. And his return home to Penny, his girlfriend. (Who by the way has great patience with Tom.) Penny suggests he keeps a journal writing down where he was the week so maybe it will spark a memory. Apparently it works and we continue to find out the secrets and past life of Tom…..and what brings him to his present day happiness.

A heartwarming story that keeps you turning the page as you find out more and more about Tom, his family, his past and the intricate workings of the mind. A must-read book.

  1. I know what you mean about forgetting names. Seems like my memory isn't the same as it used to be. Sounds like a good book.
