Publisher's Summary

What would happen if you were visited by your younger self, and got a chance for a do-over? Alice Love is 29 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 39, has three children, and is in the midst of an acrimonious divorce. A knock on the head has misplaced 10 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.

    40-something with a mind that still believes I'm 20 something but a body screaming otherwise! I enjoy listening to Audible books to break the monotony of grading papers and writing exams, care plans, and other various academic baloney. It's a way to escape into another place, another time, and another life. I appreciate the availability of this platform.

    Story
    "Predictable, but engaging..."

    From the beginning of the narrative, you're drawn into Alice's world. A story told from different perspectives; Alice has lived a very different life from the one she remembers following a bump on the head. There were moments in the story where I wanted to smack my head and say, "really?!?", and moments where both the author and narrator brought you very close to the bittersweet feelings that Alice experiences. Although the story follows a predictable storyline, it was immensely pleasurable to listen to.

    "Loved!!"

    This was 4th in a row Liane Moriarty book! I finished it so quickly and loved every minute of it. It was captivating and relatable. The characters were so real as were the emotions. She may be one of my favorite authors ever!

    "easy read but hard to follow while listening"

    Great story and I enjoyed how wrapped up in the main characters life I got. I wish they would have used different voices for the different point of views.

    Love history, good mysteries, spiritual, in general well written books. Shy away from romance novels.

    Story
    "Totally Enjoyed"

    Alice hits her head in the gym to wake up losing ten years of memories. Things and people change a lot in ten years. The story made me think of how things in most people's lives change in ten years. Alice woke to thinking she was pregnant and madly in love with her husband Nick only to find she had three children and is on the brink of divorce. What happened!!

    "Perfect"

    Absolutely perfect. Made me laugh and cry. Couldn't "put it down". I don't normally bother to review anything, but this was exceptional! I would recommend it to anyone. It makes you think about your life. It's an easy story but also complex. I wish I could forget it and read it again! (Haha)
