At 32, Faith Frankel has returned to her claustro-suburban hometown, where she writes institutional thank-you notes for her alma mater. It's a peaceful life, really, and surely with her recent purchase of a sweet bungalow on Turpentine Lane, her life is finally on track. Never mind that her fiancé is off on a crowdfunded cross-country walk, too busy to return her texts (but not too busy to post photos of himself with a different woman in every state). And never mind her witless boss, or a mother who lives too close, or a philandering father who thinks he's Chagall. When she finds some mysterious artifacts in the attic of her new home, she wonders whether anything in her life is as it seems. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mia Barron.

A Forgotten Affair is the story of Sagarika, who meets with a near-fatal accident on the day she decides to walk out of her marriage. She is severely injured in the serial bomb blasts in Mumbai's local trains and goes into a deep coma for months. Miraculously, she wakes up, only to realize she has no memory of her past. As she recovers, she realizes that Rishab, who claims to be her husband, is evasive and steers away from her queries about their past. Much against her wishes, he takes her to his opulent Gurgaon bungalow, where a helping of maids look after her but do not aid her in finding any satisfactory answers about her life before the accident. But what vexes her the most is the scent of men's perfume and a seemingly innocuous word: Cheeni. They jolt her blank mind, sending her into a frenzy of sorts. Why do they have such an effect on her? What is Rishab hiding, and why did he take her away from Mumbai? Faced with these questions, Sagarika can't help but wonder: did her accident erase the memory of something she cherished? 1.
