The nature of her amnesia is baffling to those around her and to herself- some things she remembers by muscle memory and she's quite surprised by her current life. Interspersed are letters from her surrogate grandmother to a dead lover and her sister's letters to a therapist, allowing the reader to gain knowledge that Alice herself can't access.
BFF and I had a good discussion on whether or not the premise that life changes a lot in ten years is plausible. And what kind of events or people could change us.

my verdict: good read - especially a vacation or beach read
