Content descriptions

General Note: "A novel"--Cover.
Includes a reader's guide and a conversation with the author.
Summary, etc.: One woman is about to discover everything she believes--knows--to be true about her life...isn't. After hitting her head, Lucy Sparks awakens in the hospital to a shocking revelation: the man she's known and loved for years--the man she recently married--is not actually her husband. In fact, they haven't even spoken since their breakup four years earlier. The happily-ever-after she remembers in vivid detail--right down to the dress she wore to their wedding--is only one example of what her doctors call a false memory: recollections Lucy's mind made up to fill in the blanks from the coma. Her psychologist explains the condition as honest lying, because while Lucy's memories are false, they still feel incredibly real. Now she has no idea which memories she can trust--a devastating experience not only for Lucy, but also for her family, friends and especially her devoted boyfriend, Matt, whom Lucy remembers merely as a work colleague. When the life Lucy believes she had slams against the reality she's been living for the past four years, she must make a difficult choice about which life she wants to lead, and who she really is.

    After slipping and falling on the ice, Lucy Sparks wakes up in the hospital to find that her life is not what she thought it was. While in a coma, she vividly remembered everything about her recent wedding and marriage to Daniel. Much to her dismay, she learns that she never married Daniel. In fact, they broke up more than four years ago. She's even more dismayed to find out that her friend Mark from work has become much more than a friend in the last few years. She remembers their apartment; she just doesn't remember him. Her doctors call it false memory. Her parents, Mark, and her best friend try to be helpful, filling in the blanks while trying not to push her.When Lucy finally returns to work, a coworker tries to exploit her condition. Lucy also runs into Daniel. What will she do? How can you be yourself when you're not even really sure who you are?Brown (In This Moment, 2017) has drawn likable characters populating a thoroughly enjoyable, if confusing, world.
