In this enjoyable take on the amnesia story, Brown (In This Moment) explores the complexities of memory in the aftermath of an accident that alters the life of Lucy Sparks. After slipping on a patch of ice and striking her head against the pavement, Lucy suffers amnesia and confusing false memories: she has no recollection of her relationship with her live-in boyfriend, Matt, and believes she is married to her ex-fiancé, Daniel (though she has nagging feelings that he isn’t the one for her). Her family and friends want to protect her and hold back parts of the truth, leaving Lucy feeling frustrated and uncertain of who she can trust. Matt is doing all he can to help revive her memory about the past three years of their relationship, but nothing seems to click, and Lucy only begins to move forward when she gives up on understanding the past. This simple, thoughtful story will remind readers that nothing in life is certain. (June)
