The Long Forgotten
When the black box flight recorder of a plane that went missing 30 years ago is found at the bottom of the sea, a young man named Dove begins to remember a past that isn't his. The memories belong to a rare flower hunter in 1980s New York, whose search led him around the world and ended in tragedy. Restless and lonely in present-day London, Dove is quickly consumed by the memories, which might just hold the key to the mystery of his own identity and what happened to the passengers on that doomed flight, The Long Forgotten.
The third book from multi award-winning author David Whitehouse, The Long Forgotten is a sensational novel about love, loss, inheritance and obsession, as beautiful and unforgettable as the rare blooms at its heart.

Heat Magazine Full Review
Strange and powerful, this is a complex story of love, loss and obsession.
This intoxicating mystery about memory and loss is a dazzling work of fiction.
Utterly charming, sometimes very dark, always completely riveting and it has put David Whitehouse firmly on my list of must read authors. Beautiful. Just beautiful. One I shall return to again.
Whitehouse has got form for witty observation and there’s plenty of that, but it’s the connection you feel to the characters that will win your heart.
