FORGET ME NOT

An insightful memoir of love lost and found.

An insightful and at times wrenching memoir of love lost and love found, set against a backdrop of the world's tallest peaks.

In 1999 Jennifer Lowe's husband Alex Lowe died tragically in an avalanche on the Himalayan mountain Shishapangma, leaving her alone to raise three sons. Alex was widely considered one of the greatest modern climbers and the world mourned his loss--Tom Brokaw did a one-hour special for Dateline, and Sting narrated and composed music for a tribute film.

While Jenni and her sons faced the absence of the most important man in their lives, Alex's best friend and longtime climbing partner, Conrad Anker, was dealing with the terrible loss as well as feelings of survivor's guilt. Jenni and Conrad gradually, and unexpectedly, found solace in one another and married in 2001--Conrad is now the adoptive father of the three Lowe children.

Through letters and expedition notes from Alex, Forget Me Not spans continents and tells the story of three people whose lives intertwine to a degree they could never have imagined. Jenni's account takes readers inside a woman's heart and mind as she navigates her shattered life and survives, ultimately finding transformative love through her great loss.
From the valleys of Montana to the peaks of the Himalayas, this never-before told story exposes the controversial yet ultimately redemptive power of love.

Book Reviews

"Filled with Montana-spirited passion and love for family and friends, Forget Me Not is a moving tribute, written with candor and grace, that warms the heart and inspires the soul long after the last page is turned."

Greg Mortenson, author of Three Cups of Tea

"Forget Me Not will stay with you forever. It is a beautifully written story of great love, great daring, great loss and great recovery. Most of all, it is a story of great courage."

Tom Brokaw -

"In its convincing depiction of both exuberance and pain, Forget Me Not could be called 'the complete book' of mountaineering and adventure. A tribute not only to Jenni Lowe's famous husband but to his tribe - those people who sublimate themselves to the belief that heaven is here on earth - this book will remind you to step outside and look up at the stars."

Caroline Alexander, author of The Endurance and The Bounty

"We've been waiting to read the Alex Lowe story and who better to tell it than his wife and partner Jennifer, a strong climber in her own right. This is a tough tale, told in compelling style."

Yvon Chouinard

"This is a gentle, strong, complex, candid, and niftily written book about three extraordinary people - Alex Lowe, Jenni Lowe-Anker, and Conrad Anker. You'll be glad that you read it because they and their story are so deeply worth knowing."
