Publisher Description

FROM THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE HUSBAND'S SECRET AND BIG LITTLE LIES.

A “cheerfully engaging”(Kirkus Reviews) novel for anyone who’s ever asked herself, “How did I get here?”

Alice Love is twenty-nine, crazy about her husband, and pregnant with her first child. So imagine Alice’s surprise when she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! She HATES the gym) and is whisked off to the hospital where she discovers the honeymoon is truly over—she’s getting divorced, she has three kids, and she’s actually 39 years old. Alice must reconstruct the events of a lost decade, and find out whether it’s possible to reconstruct her life at the same time. She has to figure out why her sister hardly talks to her, and how is it that she’s 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 it’s possible to start over...

Makes you rethink your priorities

I read this book thinking it would be a fun read, but instead found it to be touching and, in an odd lighthearted way, rather profound. I couldn't put it down as it cleverly worked its way backward, revealing Alice's life, pre-accident. It touched a place in me that made me rethink how I've lived the last ten years of my life. I was almost jealous of Alice for having lost her memory of the last ten years when I saw how she became a better person, wife, and mother because of the amnesia. A truly prophetic book masquerading as a quirky summer novel. I loved it.

Hits home

This story really made me appreciate my life and my husband. So many of us get caught up in the rat race and children, and forget why we got together in the first place. I could really see myself and my husband in this story....

Random pick

I purchased this book in person at random. I am so happy to have found liane as an author. What Alice Forgot was a great, touching, and reflecting read. I look forward to reading more of her books.
