What Alice Forgot


I really enjoyed this book by Liane Moriarty.  This is the first book I've read by her, but I hear others of her books also have good reviews.  This one is from the perspective of a woman who wakes up from hitting her head and has forgotten the last 10 years of her life. It really made me think about how relationships change and how looking more objectively at very emotionally charged situations can be beneficial.  Over time, we tend to react to others based on assumptions and history.  If we have the opportunity to be more objective and curious about the motives of others, we have an opportunity to really understand others and appreciate them. I liked the characters in the book and their seeming innocence.  I will likely seek out some of the author's other books.
