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 highly recommend this audiobook, I did not want to stop listening. Great narration and fascinating story. Really hit home and makes you re-examine your life and what your younger self might think of where you are today.
I liked it very much but not as much as Big Little Lies which I would give five stars all around. Premise was marvelous, but somehow got a little tedious after a while.
I loved this book! I laughed out loud and I cried. It stimulated deep personal assessment of my own life and choices. A must read for anyone married with children, but enjoyable for all life stages.
Enjoyed it a lot. It kept me continuously wondering what Alice would remember next, and each memory was worth wondering about. Narrator was excellent.
This is my favorite Moriarty book. I was truly moved by the journey taken by Alice but also those around her who watched how her memory loss changed her and then questioned things in their own lives
Great story! Lovable characters.
I had to force myself not to listen all at once. I wanted it to last but I couldn't stop thinking about it. I listen in the car and I was looking for traffic so I could listen longer.
Enjoyed this listen tremendously. Have listened to other publications by this author and have not been disappointed yet. The reader was also good at conveying emotion and driving the story. Will listen again and recommend.
