'Forget Me Not' explores the relationship between photography and memory and shows how ordinary people have sought to strengthen the emotional appeal of photographs, primarily by embellishing them to create strange and often beautiful hybrid objects.
 The emblematic poems in the first three volumes of the Forget Me Not
resonate with this act of remembering and expand its Sentimental value: (1) a
request to “keep my gift, though the gift be small” (line 37, “Poetical Address” [

By November 1822, the British reading public had already voraciously consumed both Walter Scott’s expensive novels and Rudolf Ackermann’s exquisite lithographs. The next decade, referred to by some scholars as dormant and unproductive, is in fact bursting with Forget Me Nots, Friendship’s Offerings, Keepsakes, and Literary Souvenirs. By wrapping literature, poetry, and art into an alluring package, editors and publishers saturated the market with a new, popular, and best-selling genre, the literary annual. In Forget Me Not, Katherine D. Harris assesses the phenomenal rise of the annual and its origins in other English, German, and French literary forms as well as its social influence on women, its redefinition of the feminine, and its effects on late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century print culture. Harris adopts an interdisciplinary approach that uses textual and social contexts to explore a forum of subversive femininity, where warfare and the masculine hero were not celebrated. Initially published in diminutive, decoratively bound volumes filled with engravings of popularly recognized artwork and “sentimental” poetry and prose, the annuals attracted a primarily middle-class female readership. The annuals were released each November, making them an ideal Christmas gift, lover’s present, or token of friendship. Selling more than 100,000 copies during each holiday season, the annuals were accused of causing an epidemic and inspiring an “unmasculine and unbawdy age” that lasted through 1860 and lingered in derivative forms until the early twentieth century in both the United States and Europe. The annual thrived in the 1820s and after despite — or perhaps because of — its “feminine” writing and beautiful form.

Facing hardship, enduring pain, losing all – such things are a bitter pill to swallow for anyone. For those devoted to the life of the spirit, cruel misfortune – even violent opposition – are familiar stages of the journey of life. Walking a spiritual path in a material world is rarely an easy expedition. But, obedience to the object of her devotion certainly provided Keith Ransom-Kehler with her greatest human challenge and spiritual victory. Keith was an early American believer in the Bahá'í Faith, the latest of the world's global religions. She was elevated post-humously to the high rank of 'Hand of the Cause of God', and became North America's first martyr for the Faith. Her courageous, albeit largely unknown, contribution to history is the subject of this play.
Of course she knew that a forget-me-not was a flower and the flowers woven into
the silk on the cover of the book could well have been forgetme-nots. But she
instinctively felt there was a deeper significance that was hidden from her.

In the Alazkan Klondike, at the height of the gold-rush, respectable women were thin on the ground and the San Franciscan based Peabody Marriage Bureau did a roaring trade despatching mail-order brides to women-starved stampeders. When half-Irish Lilli Stullen boarded the S.S. Senator as a Peabody bride, she did so not because she was hungry for a gold-rich husband but because it was the only way she could remove her orphaned younger brother and sister from the clutches of their hated uncle. To Lilli, the sacrifice of marrying a man she had never met was small in comparison to ensuring Leo and Lottie’s happiness – or it was until she met ‘Lucky’ Jack Coolidge, a professional gambler with devilry in his eyes – a man no woman had ever been able to hold. Lilli was certain that when they arrived in the Klondike, Jack Coolidge would pay off her husband-to-be and marry her himself. She had reckoned, however, without the man who awaited her arrival. Ringan Cameron was a hard-muscled, fiery-haired Scot with a mysterious past and Lilli, despite her Irish temper and recklessness, soon discovered she had met her match. . .
Mingled among them was a white spray of forget-me-nots. Another symbol. Grant

intended, the end result would be the same. Grant's life would be destroyed.

Rocky Mtn. RESCUE ALONE IN A MOUNTAIN BLIZZARD, with her son in the hands of kidnappers, Susan Richardson needed rescuing. But why did her ex-husband, Grant, have to be her rescuer? If only Susan had been more careful, Grant thought. If only Grant hadn't made so many enemies, Susan thought. But the only words they dared to speak were, "It's up to us to save our son." If their instincts were right, the disastrous fire that years ago had raged through Grant's Colorado resort—destroying their dreams and their marriage—was back to haunt them in the form of a kidnapper bent on revenge. Years ago events in these Rocky Mountains had pulled Grant and Susan apart. Now could the mountains bring them—and their family—back together? An icy blizzard rages…and heated passions burn….
