Imagine losing the most important ten years of your life.

Alice is twenty-nine. She adores sleep, chocolate, and her ramshackle new house. She's newly engaged to the wonderful Nick and is pregnant with her first baby. There's just one problem. All that was ten years ago.

Alice slipped in a step-aerobics class, hit her head and lost a decade. Now she's a grown-up, bossy mother of three in the middle of a nasty divorce and her beloved sister Elisabeth isn't speaking to her. This is her life but not as she knows it. Clearly Alice has made some terrible mistakes. Just how much can happen in a decade? Can she ever get back to the woman she used to be?

Reviews

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
Australian Women's Weekly

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…bravura depiction. Great stuff
The Age

A thought-provoking story that explores family dynamics with intelligence, wit and sensitivity but without any sentimentality
Courier Mail

The pages turn with ease as the mysteries of modern domestic life unfold and the pieces of Alice’s lost decade slip back into place
Australian Sunday Times

There is gentle comedy bubbling through this book…but there is sorrow too…a well-crafted story from an intriguing premise
Notebook Magazine

Fresh, very funny and entertaining…also intelligent and unsentimental about family dynamics Marian Keyes

Compelling and entertaining
Good Reading

A great story which would be perfect for curling up with - I couldn't put it down
Australian Bookseller & Publisher
