From the no. 1 New York Times bestselling author of The Husband's Secret and Big Little Lies

When Alice Love surfaces from a strange dream to find she's been injured in a gym, her first concern is for her unborn baby. She's desperate to see her husband, Nick, who she knows will be worried about her.

But Alice isn't pregnant. And Nick isn't rushing to her bedside. She is a mother of three going through a bitter divorce.

Alice has lost ten years of her life - and she wants them back.

PRAISE FOR WHAT ALICE FORGOT

"What [Moriarty] writes are acute social comedies of the feminine, where the domestic is more political than cosy... Technically this premise is a challenge, which Moriarty makes appear effortless... Great stuff" The Age

"A bittersweet tale by a gifted writer, whose light touch doesn't stop her exploring darker themes, such as infertility and the sad erosion of a once radiant love." Women's Weekly

"An intruiging exploration of how people change... Alice's amnesia is skilfully usd and like a detective, she must piece together the details of a life she cannot remember." Sun Herald

Once again, Liane Moriarty had me tearing through her novel! I think this book is older than some of the others I've read, but that didn't matter. I feel so connected to the character, and Moriarty always had a way of keeping me on the edge of my seat, wondering what will happen next! Read full review
