“One thing I’ve been thinking about a lot is how I would feel if I lost 10 years of my memory, and what things would surprise me, or please me, or upset me, about how my life had turned out.”

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 mustdiscover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether it’s possible to start over.
Review:This was my 3rd Liane Moriarty book I believe, it was a nice read. Nothing too crazy in it, it was a different idea in a book & I liked it. It brought to attention alot about the struggles some women face when it comes to getting pregnant. The diary entries by Elizabeth really made my heart cry for her, I’m glad she got her happy ending.
“I’m sure it’s innate, it’s just biology, for a man to want a woman who can give him children, I raised this with Ben once. I Said he must secretly resent me and I understood that. He got so angry. The angriest I’ve seen him. ‘Never say that again,’ he said. But I bet that’s why he got so angry, because he knew it was true. “
The book mentions Greys Anatomy quite a few times which I loveeeeed because it’s my favourite show ever! Seeing Alice not being “herself”, makes you think what would I be like in 10 years & if I lost my memory, what would happen?
