What Alice forgot

Alice is taken to hospital after a fall at the gym. Her main concern is the health of her unborn baby - so she's astounded to discover that not only is she not pregnant with her first child, she has three children she doesn't remember. She's desperate to see her husband Nick - but the husband she loves so much is divorcing her. Home is unrecognisable, as is the rest of her life. Her sister Elisabeth is acting oddly - and who is Gina?
Alice has lost 10 years of memories and this book is the story of her journey of discovery - discovering that she no longer likes the self that she has become, or the way her life has turned out..
I enjoyed this book so much. It's amusing without being light and fluffy and Moriarty deals well with the serious issues. She really gets inside her characters' heads so the dialogue and the feelings ring true.
This is the first of her books I have read and I'm now looking forward to reading others.
Rating - I give this 4/5
Get this from the library
