What if you woke up with no memory? You didn't know anything but your name. You didn't know if something was edible or not. You didn't know where you were. You didn't know anything....
For a few of us, this wouldn't be a problem. We hope to have an adventure and starting over with no memory is just such an adventure but for most of us...it would be horrible.
Meda faces such a challenge. She's not sure how she got to the island or even who she is... all she remembers is her name. But danger surrounds her and she's going to have to figure things out or perish!
I know I had a good life before. If only I could remember it.
I couldn’t sew, I couldn’t fish, I couldn’t hunt, I couldn’t cook, for goodness’ sake I couldn’t even tell the hallucinogenic mushrooms from the non-hallucinogenic ones. The list of Things I Couldn’t Do was uncomfortably long.
There was, however, one pretty big thing I could do: I could heal people with just a touch of my hands.
I didn’t understand it, nor did I know why or how I came by this ability, because here was the other thing: I had no memory.
Nada. Nil. Zero.
I had simply awoken on a beach, about two months ago, with my name rolling around my head, but that was it. My name was all I knew.
Just my name.
