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.

I'm a first time listener and its been interesting! I love murder mysteries, crime, and horror
Just 2 long, I think it could've been shortened up to achieve the same results. Narrator was pleasant.
the narrator was good except that it was hard to distinguish between the two sisters. the story line was good. loved the ending. would definitely recommend. a very quick read.
I loved this book because it makes you think about your life and how we change. It was very cleverly written, funny and insightful. Great writer and great performance also, will definitely read another book by this author.
Unforgettable, real, engaging
Everything! The author's slightly schizophrenic writing style takes some getting used to, but after The Husband's Secret, this story was delicious, and not in the "normal" way that word is used. I'm not typically a fan of realistic fiction, as it is typically too real and depressing, but this author has totally changed my view on the genre. Her "realistic fiction" is woven with such realistic complexity as to truly mimic real life, in a way that few have done.
No, but I will! I love that this Australian book is read by an Australian!
Aussie mom gets a do-over!
I loved this book and the premise. Made me reflect upon how much i have changed and my life has changed in the past ten years. Really good book that made me introspective, appreciative and understanding of how much our minute to minute life shapes is and changes us. I loved the way that Alice found herself again and was able to grow and learn from and experience. We don't have to accept things and let them continue down a certain path just because we have already been headed down that certain path. Thought provoking. Well read. And well written. I definitely would recommend this book to anyone who has been married over ten years and had any kind of bump in the road along the way.
I loved this book. It gave a great perspective of life in the fast paced world and how we can forget how beautiful life was when we were more innocent and simple hearted. It helps us remember to incorporate our experience with our youth. Great book!!
