As a newlywed, Mrs. O'Brien makes a vow to her older sister-in-law, the formidable Sister Mary-Frances, promising a child to the church. As the years pass and all her children perish, save one, Mary-Kate, Mrs. O'Brien tries to forget her pledge. But Sister Mary-Frances doesn't. When the nun comes to collect her charge, trouble ensues. The O'Briens do everything, short of sacrilege, to keep Mary-Kate out of the clutches of the demanding nun.

A Town Called Forget is Anne of Green Gables turned on its head. But in this tale it is not an over-imaginative redheaded orphan that takes center stage but the off-beat town itself, full of individuals that should be restrained if not medicated. And the poor heroine of this yarn, banished to live with her Aunt Lily whom her parents have never publicly recognized, has to navigate the delicate balance between her aunt's sanity and neuroses. Amid adventures and misadventures, she learns about patience, tolerance and even love.
