Each night when Christine Lucas goes to sleep her mind erases the day. Each day she wakes in a strange bed with a man she has never seen before. He explains that he is Ben, her husband, that she is forty-seven years old, and that an accident long ago damaged her memory. Each day she tries to reconstruct her life, her identity, her marriage. But how can she know who she is if she forgets her past? How can she love someone she can't remember? Are there things best forgotten? And why is she so frightened?
Memories define us. So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love — all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may only be telling you half the story. Welcome to Christine's life.
This book is so far my top pick for this year, and again another debut author. I literally finished the last quarter of this book in one sitting, couldn't put it down, and really didn't see the twist coming at all. Fans of thrillers will love this, and I can't wait to see the film [starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman]. Hopefully it has done the book justice on the big screen. If this is an indication of this author's writing then bring on his next book!
