Zane Kotker's novel Try to Remember is a psychological thriller that's both timely and timeless. What I love about Try to Remember is that it immerses you in a beautifully written novel, and it also gives insights into the delicate inner workings of a young woman and a family.

Try to Remember opens ordinarily enough. Claire and her two young-adult daughters, Phoebe and Bess, seem the very picture of accomplishment and well-being.

The question of what's real and what's imagined carries the potential to ruin lives, particularly in cases of alleged childhood sexual abuse.

Who can you believe? A family is devastated by an accusation of sexual abuse during the Four-year Wave (1988-1992) of false accusations. Skillfully shifting among various viewpoints, Kotker renders sympathetic the character and motives of people who find themselves irreconcilably opposed. Kotker understands that she is writing about a complicated cultural as well as psychological phenomenon, and she does it with superb sensitivity. Joan Jacobs Brumberg.

"This is a powerful and courageous novel about a family struggling to know the truth about its past without being destroyed by it. You either need to read it or know somebody who does." --Phyllis Theroux, author of California and Other States of Grace    Phoebe Fairchild--in her twenties, high-achieving, and her father's favorite--is unaccountably depressed. Her new therapist, Sahra Meehan, becomes her lifeline, and with Sahra as her guide, Phoebe begins to uncover what she believes are childhood memories of her father: an inappropriate touch here, a look there, then more. Phoebe's parents are at first unbelieving and then shattered when Phoebe accuses her father of sexual abuse, and Claire and Harvey Fairchild's loving marriage of twenty-five years is thrown into question. When Phoebe tries to involve her sister, Bess, in the therapy, the family is in danger of splitting apart completely. Insightful, richly detailed, and wonderfully written, Try to Remember is a harrowing novel about the heart of an American family, and how good intentions can threaten to destroy so much.    "Vibrant with insight. . . . Try to Remember is that unexpected miracle: a morality tale that doesn't preach, as well as a riveting psychological whodunit; and a bittersweet meditation on family and the depth of parental obligation." --Madeleine Blais, author of In These Girls, Hope Is a Muscle    "Try to Remember is a compelling story. . . . Kotker understands that she is writing about a complicated cultural as well as psychological phenomenon, and she does it with superb sensitivity." --Joan Jacobs Brumberg, author of The Body Project: An Intimate History of American  Girls    "No parent will remain unshaken by Try to Remember, but in today's world--when sexual abuse within the family is suddenly a much-discussed topic--perhaps every parent and older child should read it."--Susan Allen Toth, author of How to Prepare for Your High School Reunion: And Other Midlife Musings    "Zane Kotker's novel Try to Remember is a psychological thriller that's both timely and timeless. Pertinent as this morning's headlines, the book is a compelling read, which Kotker's stylistic gift transforms into a work of art." --Hugh Nissenson, author of The Tree of Life    "What I love about Try to Remember is that it immerses you in a beautifully written novel, and it also gives insights into the delicate inner workings of a young woman and a family. "--Elizabeth Loftus, Ph.D., professor of psychology, University of Washington, and co-author of The Myth of Repressed Memory

This is a terrific book about a very touchy subject. Before you let the Kirkus review turn you off, consider what Publisher's Weekly had to say, "Timely and trechant, Kotker's examination of fmaily dynamics in an era of confrontational blame is a gripping read." And the Library Journal, which gave the book a star, said, "Kotker has produced a sensitive, finely crafted portrayal of two generations -- empty-nest parents and their grown children foundering in their new independence -- and of a tragedy that alters their lives irrevocably."

Kirkus is unfair. This book is not strident, and it is not a"movie-of-the-week" subject, but a moving novel of family life today. The mother and father are memorably portrayed. They could be one's parents, or oneself. The psychiatric profession doesn't look very good by the end of the book--but the picture is quite realistic. False memories and false accusations of sexual abuse are among the most tragic and fascinating phenomena of recent times, an undertow that more than one family has drowned in. This novel shows how such things can happen, and why, and how one young woman managed to free herself.

Brilliantly portrayed power of the "shrink" and the devastation that can occur when misuse by the manipulation of a patient's mind occurs at the hands of a psychiatric counsellor. Beautifully written with wonderful characterization and descriptions of people,inner thoughts, places, and events, resulting in a tumultuous turmoil of family destruction, but leaving hope on a thread of possibility.
