With time, he receded further and further into darkness until he disappeared altogether. Now, four years after Richardâ€™s passing, Cate is let go from her teaching job and canâ€™t pay the rent on the London flat she shares with her and Richardâ€™s son, Leo.

Despite growing pains and a grouchy caretaker, Cate falls in love with the quirky taxidermy exhibits and sprawling grounds and makes it her mission to revive them. But as Cate becomes more invested in Hatters, she must finally confront the reality of Richardâ€™s death â€“ and the role she played in it â€“ in order to reimagine her future.The Museum of Forgotten Memories masterfully weaves life with death, past with present, and grief with hope.
