The Memory of Love

ₒ Easy reader ⊍ The Memory of Love ₩ By Aminatta Forna ⃝ Forma, recipient of a Hurston Wright Legacy Award for Ancestor Stones, returns to Africa s troubled conscience in this admirable if uneven outing Adrian Lockheart is a well meaning English psychologist who embarks on a temporary post at a Sierra Leone hospital intending to modernize treatment of the long neglected schizophrenics, transients, and scarred victims of civil war who walk the hospital grounds He soon meets his match in the elderly ex professor Elias Cole, who speaks eloquently of his country s turbulent history and also of his passion for the wife of a radically minded colleague whose eventual disappearance Cole may be implicated in As the holes in Elias s story widen, Adrian falls for a patient s daughter and into conflict with a surgeon, and ripples from the unexamined past threaten the present Yet Forma s material doesn t measure up to the book s length The book s prolixity, combined with scenes that drag or come off as forced, certainly doesn t ruin the experience, but it does occasionally glut what amounts to a heartening cry for moral responsibility in the thick of maddening injustice Jan c Copyright PWxyz, LLC All rights reserved.Set in Sierra Leone at the turn of the twenty first century, Fornas absorbing second novel after Ancestor Stones, 2006 revolves around three very different men British psychiatrist Adrian Lockheart has fled his failing marriage in England in the hopes of doing some good in Sierra Leone Adrian becomes fascinated by two of his patients, elderly Elias Cole, a former university professor, and Agnes, a woman lost in a fugue state The dying Cole reveals to Adrian, Scheherazade like, how he fell in love with a radical colleagues wife in the late 1960s, while Adrian must piece together the details of Agnes life Adrian finds a friend in a haunted young surgeon, Kai, who is contemplating leaving the country Kai questions some of Adrians risky decisions, such as his intention to track Agnes down once she leaves the hospital, but it is Adrians involvement with a local woman from Kais past that shocks the young doctor Fate and tragedy intertwine in this stunning and powerful portrait of a country in the aftermath of a decade of civil war Kristine Huntley Memory Wikipedia Sensory memory holds sensory information less than one second after an item is
