"She was floating, arms outspread, water lapping her body, breathing in a summery fragrance of salt and coconut. She had to squint through spangles of light to see her feet. Her toenails were each painted a different colour. Red. Gold. Purple. Funny." When Alice Love surfaces from a beautiful dream to find she's been injured in a gym, she knows that something is very wrong - she hates exercise. Alice's first concern is her baby, she's pregnant with her first child, and 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 worried. Alice is the mother of three children and her hostile husband is in the process of divorcing her. Alice has lost ten years of her life. Alice's sister Elisabeth, who seems uncharacteristically cold, drives her home from the hospital. And home is totally unrecognisable, as is the rest of her life. Who is this Gina that everyone is carefully trying not to mention? Why does her mother look like she's wearing fancy dress? And what's all this talk about a giant lemon meringue pie? In the days that follow, small bubbles of the past rise to the surface, and Alice is forced to confront uncomfortable truths. It turns out forgetting might be the most memorable thing that's ever happened to her.

From the no. 1 New York Times bestselling author of The Husband's Secret, Big Little Lies and new novel Apples Never Fall. 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
