  • About the book:

    She’s a wife, a sister, a daughter…but she remembers nothing. Now she must ask herself who she is and choose which stories—and storytellers—to trust. One of only two survivors of a plane crash, Nell Slattery wakes up in the hospital with no memory of it, or who she is, or was. Now she must piece together both body and mind with the help of family and friends who have their own agendas. Although Nell can’t remember all that came before, something just doesn’t sit right with the versions of her history given by her mother, her sister, and her husband.

    Desperate for a key to unlock her past, she filters through photos, art, music, and stories, hoping that something will jog her memory, and soon, in tiny bits and pieces, Nell starts remembering. . . .

    From the New York Times bestselling author of Time of My Life comes a novel that asks: Who are we without our memories? How much of our future is defined by our past?

    My Review:

    Overall I enjoyed reading this book. I read it in one night. It drew me in and I had to find out what happened next. The only two things I did not like was the amount of foul language and promiscuous behavior. I overlooked it for the interesting plot and captivating characters but I cringed in several places. I reminded myself that it is a secular book not a Christian fiction book I am used too. So a good book overall and I am looking at her other books to see if I would enjoy them. Recommended to fans of secular women's fiction. :)
