Walking on Sunshine

Liane Moriarty – What Alice Forgot – 2010/TBR

The Back of the Book:  Imagine forgetting the most important 10 years of your life.

Alice wakes up on the floor of the gym with a nasty bump to her head, thinking she’s still a fun loving 29-year-old starting life with her gorgeous husband and pregnant with their first baby.

To her disbelief, it soon transpires the fall has knocked 10 years from her memory and she is actually an uptight 39-year-old whose idea of a good time is a three hour workout followed by committee meetings with the kind of woman she used to despise.  How on earth did her life come to this?  And more disturbingly, how can she not remember giving birth to three children?  Why does her husband suddenly hate her?  And what can Alice possibly have done that means her beloved sister will barely speak to her?

Seeing herself through fresh eyes, Alice barely recognizes or even likes the person she has become.  Can she ever find her body back to the woman she used to be?
