Connie Penner writes under the name, C.P. Hoff.Connie grew up as a gypsy. Well, she could have been a gypsy if her family could have afforded the damned wagon. Her parents were pragmatic and raised her not to believe in aliens, but Connie is not convinced that aliens don't believe in her.She now lives in southern Alberta with her husband, children, and dog, Mrs. Beasley (who has a dubious reputation). She has written for the local paper, which might be impressive if she lived in New York, and if anyone read the local paper.Now that Five Rivers has taken on her first novel, she is thinking of purchasing a pipe and a smoking jacket.


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. A tender and often hilarious debut novel from Alberta writer, C.P. Hoff The discordant notes come from a wit and sauciness that would make Oscar Wilde proud. LibraryThing This humorous Canadian story is completely different. From everything. Maybe it's Anne of Green Gables with a little Alice Through the Looking Glass thrown in. Tim Armstrong author of Avians You will probably never come across a town like Forget, it's a one of a kind and I marvel at the creative thought processes of C.P. Hoff in giving us this town. There's also a secret, a well hidden secret, that is slowly revealed and was quite a surprise. Like the town's slogan says "Forget is a place that you won't forget" and so is this book!
