This isn’t a book in the indie community, but I absolutely loved it! Here’s my review:
Alice has had an accident at the gym and the last 10 years of her life is gone. She thinks she is 29 years old and pregnant. Imagine her shock when she learns that she has three children and she is in the middle of a nasty divorce and custody battle with the love of her life?
What Alice Forgot was such an important wake-up call. Moriarty’s presented the book from various points of view. She wrote in the present, talking about Alice and what she was going through or what she occasionally remembered, she wrote from Alice’s sister Elisabeth point of view, and she wrote from her grandmother’s point of view. But the way she wrote from each point of view was unique and engaging.
Each woman suffers struggles, as Alice is struggling to regain her memory, Elisabeth struggles with fertility, and her grandmother Frannie struggles with letting go of the past. What Alice Forgot is such an engaging and poignant book, incredibly thought-provoking, and absolutely beautiful.
