What would happen if you were visited by your younger self, and got a chance for a do-over?

Alice Love is twenty-nine 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 thirty-nine, has three children, and is in the midst of an acrimonious divorce.

A knock on the head has misplaced ten 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Courtney | 3/16/2017

    " This book is chock full of both hilarious and poignant moments. The way Moriarty weaves the themes of loss and redemption together with humor and tenderness is truly the mark of a gifted writer. Not only was I able to enter fully into the emotional life of the three main characters, I was also able to relate fully to each one. The narrator, Tamara Lovatt-Smith, was absolutely superb, and I actually kept hearing echoes of her voice in my head for days after finishing the book. Bravo! "
