3.5 stars--I read this in a day so it definitely has some appeal. I get way into thrillers, and then I always feel a little let down in the end. I love the concept behind this story--a woman has suffered a traumatic brain injury that wipes out her memory every night she goes to sleep. Each day she wakes up not remembering much beyond her early twenties and now she is almost 50. When she starts seeing a new doctor, who encourages her to remember specific events and keep a journal, she begins to understand the past and question why her husband is keeping so much from her. I think this would be a good mystery pick for a book club.
