FORGOTTEN is a candid account of one man's journey through the world of homelessness. Although it is a work of fiction, truth rings through its pages. It is a book about second chances, about how we all need each other, how we are interconnected and how we have the power to influence the lives of others, whether by helping them directly, or by simply accepting them as they are. The services we provide are not enough. Those who are homeless need compassion and a listening ear as much as they need food or shelter. We have the ability to change this world, and the place to start is with ourselves. As Mahatma Gandhi said, "The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." Part of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be used to feed and help the homeless.

Aug 6, 2016A very powerful account of what life could be like living on the streets. With characters I found I could easily bond with and feel for, I was intrigued by T’s story from beginning to end. Waking up in an Albertan hospital, T depends on a picture in a found wallet to help find himself. With nothing but a once nice brown suit and shoes, the wallet is given to him in hopes of providing answers. It was almost empty except for a photo that would change his life forever. Boulter’s first book written out of inspiration and completed through motivation, I know the story has a lot more to offer but sure did pack a punch. I am eager to read the sequel and hope it covers the before and after of Forgotten! Thanks for reading, Sarah Butland
Aug 3, 2016I was really captivated by "FORGOTTEN" and could not put it down! The author certainly could have also named this book "PERSEVERANCE" as, although faced with mental, physical, social and community obstacles, "T" was determined to find himself and his roots. Being from New Brunswick (specifically Moncton) I could visualize him being at certain locations and walking familiar streets. Although FORGOTTEN was written as fiction, it was raw and realistic and described the typical experiences and people that many of the homeless encounter in the struggle to survive on a daily basis. "Forgotten" has fortified my strong belief that "everyone has a story".
Apr 18, 2016Louise Boulter's story Forgotten is a thought provoking journey into the lives of the homeless in this country. At times it can make us look deep into our own good fortune and murmur our thanks, as we think about or pass those who are truly forgotten in the streets. This riveting story is not one you will likely put down and come back to, for you will want to read it through until the end. It will make you think, and hopefully urge you to help the folks who have fallen through the cracks in our society. Lockie Young
Mar 23, 2016Forgotten by Louise Boulter is the riveting story of a man who has lost himself, but is able to find himself in the world of homelessness. The journey that Tee goes through as he tries to find his way home is fascinating and heart breaking. We are introduced to many others who are lost with Tee and some who, though homeless, are bright lights and able to show Tee the way. The author gives insight into the plight of our homeless that will open your heart and mind. Forgotten is an amazing story that is hard to put down.
