    Boring and Repetitive SPOILER The first 3rd of this book was intriguing Unfortunately, after that it was just a long, drawn out shallow plot where the main character keeps agonizing over a corrected birth defect for years The story took too long to get to the end and it was a very lack luster ...

    Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this book although I was interested enough to finish reading it Essentially, it is a story of Charlotte who gets into a car accident with her three year old daughter and her head injury makes her forget the last four years so she doesn t remember becoming pregnant, giving birth to her daughter, her daughter s heart condition or deciding not to return to her job The Charlotte that comes out of the accident still wants to be a career woman, and thinks she is one, a Unfortunately, I did not enjoy this book although I was interested enough to finish reading it Essentially, it is a story of Charlotte who gets into a car accident with her three year old daughter and her head injury makes her forget the last four years so she doesn t remember becoming pregnant, giving birth to her daughter, her daughter s heart condition or deciding not to return to her job The Charlotte that comes out of the accident still wants to be a career woman, and thinks she is one, as opposed to the stay at home mother she is in reality.I typically really don t like novels like this one that have chapters mixing the past and present especially where, like here, the past is what Charlotte and the reader are trying to discover I usually find, and this book was no exception, that the back and forth broke up the story too much for me The reader finds out what happened, but ther...

You wake up in a hospital and things are not how they were In fact, nothing is the same How could this happen When did Charlotte decide to NOT follow the life plan Can she and her husband ever resume the way they were This is a well designed novel that alternates between a three year time frame There is a smooth transition to help understand all the changes and confusion that Charlotte feels following her accident that has prom You think you have your life perfectly in place and then.
