Left Neglected by Lisa Genova

Sarah Nickerson juggles a demanding, high-paying job with being a mom to three young children and a wife to her husband, Bob. One day, she crashes her car and suffers a traumatic brain injury called Left Neglect, which means she has no awareness of anything on the left side of her body or to the left of her. Through months of therapy, Sarah struggles to relearn the simplest tasks like walking and reading. Sarah's accident also causes her mother, from whom she's been distant with for years, to come back into her life. Will Sarah be able to resume her life as it was and, if so, does she really want to? In Left Neglected, Genova has written another unputdownable novel about a woman facing a unique illness and the effect it has on her life as a wife and mother. If you like books by Jodi Picoult, give Lisa Genova a try.
