What Alice Forgot
What Alice Forgot By Liane Moriarty While Alice is cycling away in her Friday Spin Class, she becomes dizzy, falls, bumps her head and so begins what Alice forgot. Alice has forgotten the last ten years. She does not know her three children, she thinks she is 29 and happily married, while in actuality she is 39 and in the middle of a nasty divorce. Her younger, happy, carefree spirit is shocked by the very "busy", angry lady she has become. While Alice tries to figure out what has become of her life and waits for her memory to return, she has to contend with her affection for her ex husband, distant sister, remarried mother and her apparent boyfriend. This witty, laughable satire is one any woman could relate to. The freedom, hope and bright light of a young marriage is extinguished by crying babies, lack of sleep, lost career and growing resentment of the spouse flourishing in the business world, choosing office success over stress at home. What Alice Forgot makes the reader remember. Loved this adorable novel, highly recommend this fun read.
