I. una callingham's first recollection. II. Beginning life again. III. An unexpected visitor. I saw even the books not asbooks but as visible points of colour.

And now that I sat on deck, in a wicker-chair, andlooked at the deep dark waves by myself, I began once more, in vaguesnatches, to recall that earlier voyage. It came back to me all ofitself. And that was quite in keeping with my previous recollections. My past life, I felt sure, was unfolding itself slowly to me inregular succession, from childhood onward. Sitting there on the quarter-deck, gazing hard at the waves, Iremembered how I had played on a similar ship years and yearsbefore, a little girl in short frocks, with my mamma in a longfolding-chair beside me.

And then I went on to tell him in very brief outline how the firstthing I could recollect in all my life was the Australian scene withthe big blue-gum-trees; and how that had been recalled to me by thepicture at Jane's.

Well, we'll try things just so with you,Una

"Recalled to Life" was first published in 1891, eight years before Allen's death. It is, I think, a rather unusual book for its times. First of all, it is written from a woman's perspective, by a male author - and he has done a rather good job, in my opinion (with the occasional annoying "after all, I am only a woman" coming from the heroine - but maybe in those days women really felt like that and relied more on the men in their lives to solve problems, conduct businesses and so on). Secondly, the heroine is determined to go against what society in general and her relatives in particular expect and advise her to do; she follows her own lead. Thirdly, the language appears much more modern than what you'd think you would find in a book from 1891. Comparing it to This Freedom, which was written in 1922, I would not instantly be able to tell which is younger.

Now to the story: At the age of 18, Una Callingham suffers complete amnesia when she witnesses the murder of her father. Like a baby, she has to re-learn how to speak, think, read and write. Four years later, she is in possession of all her mental faculties again, but still can not remember anything from her life before the murder. People she knew back then are strangers to her, and no matter how often the police have spoken to her, trying to trigger her memory into finding anything that could be a clue to the murderer's identity, she is only left very distressed and frustrated every time.

Of course, this wouldn't be much of a story if things were not about to change. A new inspector turns up to talk to Una, handing her a bundle of paper clippings about the event, with photographs and all. Until now, her aunt had been so protective of her that she was never allowed to read what the papers wrote about her and the murder of her father. Now that she comes face to face with some of the facts that had been kept from her, she is determined to take things into her own hands and solve the mystery, knowing that she will never be able to lead a happy, self-determined life if she does not get rid of the mystery overshadowing her entire past.

By now, Una is 22 and can legally do as she pleases. There is enough money for her to travel and stay comfortably, and she sets out on her quest all optimistic and hopeful. The clues she keeps finding - both in her own memory and by talking to people who knew her and her father before - lead her as far away from England as Canada.
It is there that the circumstances of the murder and the true identity of the murderer are revealed. Some of it ranges from the surprising to the improbable, but it is all well written and kept me in suspense until (nearly) the end.

If you look for a good old-fashioned mystery (that is actually not so old-fashioned in some respects) and like free ebooks, I can recommend this one from the kindle shop.

Not sure about this one. I am going to try to read it again a little later and see if that helps.

Though I had no idea what I was sending to my kindle, I thought I would take a chance because this book is FREE! I was pleasently surprised by the story- and I enjoyed it thoroughly. It is the tale of a young woman trying to piece together her life and find her father's murderer after suffering from acute memory loss. The reader is drawn in as the character rediscovers her past and the mystery that surrounds her father's death and the nature of his killer. I would highly suggest it - an easy quick read.
