What Alice Forgot
*whooooooooo* Finished! I read this one for the last two (3? days) and now I see why! Almost 500 pages of an incredibly written personal story focusing on the heroine’s emotional journey of loss. Loss of a marriage that once was happily the center of her world, but also, loss of a certain part of her memory after an accident.
And while we might guffaw at the “amnesia” trope, this one really worked, for me. The reality we experienced… a whole other “perspective” to a life once forgotten by “taking each other for granted” and life happening as it will… was wonderfully explored.
