Publisher Comments:

What would happen if you were visited by your younger self, and got a chance for a do-over?

Alice Love is twenty-nine years old, madly in love with her husband, and pregnant with their first child. So imagine her surprise when, after a fall, she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym she HATES the gym ) and discovers that she's actually thirty-nine, has three children, and is in the midst of an acrimonious divorce.

A knock on the head has misplaced ten years of her life, and Alice isn't sure she likes who she's become. It turns out, though, that forgetting might be the most memorable thing that has ever happened to Alice.

Synopsis:

From the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller, THE HUSBANDS SECRET...

A “cheerfully engaging”* novel for anyone whos ever asked herself, “How did I get here?”

  
Alice Love is twenty-nine, crazy about her husband, and pregnant with her first child.

She has to figure out why her sister hardly talks to her, and how is it that shes become one of those super skinny moms with really expensive clothes. Ultimately, Alice must discover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether its possible to start over…

What Alice Forgot is one of the most engaging books I've ever read. It was so easy to get sucked in to Alice's story and the mystery of what happened the last ten years of her life. It raised great questions: who am I becoming and do I want to go there?; will my spouse and I have similar issues and will they even matter?; who are the most important people in my life?; is that what it's really like to go through infertility?; is that what it's really like to go through separation and divorce?

All I know is that it is hilarious, thought-provoking, and strangely suspenseful.

I just finished a book ~ a story where I wondered what the characters were doing when I wasn't reading about them. They became real to me, and I was fascinated by the people I met and the wonderful and horrible interactions they had with each other.

It was a book about friendship, and sister/family relationships, and spousal interactions, and power, and the many changes we go thru over time in our lives.

There were some pretty danged funny parts, and some tearfully poignant parts; there were some parts that I have encountered in my own life, and some scenes that were absolutely new ~ and all were beautifully explored and explained and embraced.

I would suggest it for you to read ~ I read almost the entire book today…I was so drawn to it that when there were other things I was "supposed to be doing", I simply put the "to do" list away...and I read. I'm glad I did.

If you read it ~ I hope you are glad you did, too.
