She can’t remember anything about her life for the past 10 years, and has to evaluate how she got in her present situation, and how to get out of it. It’s a great reminder to re-focus your life, not get caught up in the hustle and bustle and pay attention to what really matters, including why you chose your spouse to begin with. Best book I’ve read in a while!”
