Left Neglected by Lisa Genova

Posted on

“Sarah Nickerson is like any other career-driven supermum who leads a hectic but charmed life with her husband and three children. Between excelling at work; shuttling the kids around; convincing her son’s teacher that he may not in fact have ADHD; and making it home in time for dinner, it’s a wonder this over-scheduled, high-flyer has time to breath.

Sarah carefully manages every minute of her life, until one fateful day, while driving to work, she looks away from the road for one second too long. In an instant all the rapidly moving parts of her jam-packed life come to a sceeching halt. A traumatic brain injury completely erases the left side of her world. For once, Sarah must relinquish control to those around her. As she wills herself to recover, Sarah must learn that a happiness greater than all the success in the world is close within reach, if only she slows down long enough to notice”.

Fabulous reading! This was one of those books that makes you say wow – what really is important in my life?? While Sarah is recuperating she realises what really is important in her life and strenthens bonds between her husband, children and mother. I had never heard of ‘left neglect’ before and it was facinating reading more about it. Imagine suddenly everything, eveyone and every part of your body on the left is in your mind not there – just gone.

A great book not to be missed! Lisa Genova  has also written a book called Still Alice which I have heard is just as amazing. I picked this up at work yesterday & can’t wait to get reading! 🙂

**I am writing these reviews just so I can share books that I have read and that you might like to read too**
