The moving second novel from the author of international hit Still Alice, which explores the life of a woman struck by a brain disorder, Left Neglect

'I think some small part of me knew I was living an unsustainable life. Every now and then, it would whisper, slow down. You don't need all this.'

Sarah Nickerson has it all: a high-flying career, a loving husband and children, a second home. But does she have time to enjoy it? Too busy to pay full attention, can she see what's left neglected?

One fateful day while driving to work, Sarah looks away from the road for one second too long. In the blink of an eye, her overfull life comes to a screeching halt. In the wake of a devastating accident that affects her body and mind in surprising ways, it's time for her to choose: who does she really want to be?

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Remember how you couldn't put down Still Alice? Well, clear your schedule--because you're going to feel the same way." --JODI PICOULT Then we are using this full quote, with full attribution, on top of back cover: "The journey Lisa Genova takes us on in LEFT NEGLECTED is a personal one, for any woman who's ever had to make a business call while driving to day care, or who finishes a full day's work at a high-powered job only to start the second shift as a mom: sometimes, we literally need a shock to the system to remember what matters the most in life. Remember how you couldn't put down STILL ALICE? Well, clear your schedule - because you're going to feel the same way." - Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author of HOUSE RULES and SING YOU HOME "Lisa Genova is the Michael Crichton of brain science. What she proved with Still Alice, she proves again with Left Neglected. This is huge, powerful human drama at its elegant best." --Jacquelyn Mitchard, New York Times bestselling author of The Deep End of the Ocean "As Sarah Nickerson works her way through a devastating brain injury and back into her hectic life, she is forced to re-evaluate what really matters. I dare any reader to not do the same in their own lives after reading this book." --Ann Hood, author of Comfort, The Red Thread and Somewhere Off the Coast of Maine "Lisa Genova has done it again! By turns chilling and deeply moving, Left Neglected is a stunning reminder that a single moment can change a life...A Triumph on many levels" --Brunonia Barry, New York Times bestselling author of The Lace Reader "Achingly real. Beautifully written. Lisa Genova takes us on a moving journey of loss, forgiveness, hope, love and the resilience of the human spirit." -- Julia Fox Garrison, author of Don't Leave Me This Way "Intuitive and captivating. In this moving chronicle of a family's struggle with brain injury, Lisa Genova powerfully conveys the shattering trials of an ordinary life made alien by brain injury, and in the process reveals the true power and strength of the human spirit. Left Neglected will leave you stunned and inspired." -- Michael Paul Mason, author of Head Cases: Stories of Brain Injury and Its Aftermath "Devastating and hopeful, haunting and familiar, Left Neglected is a triumph of insight and empathy." -- Stefan Merrill Block, International Bestselling author of The Story of Forgetting and The Storm at the Door "Once again, Lisa Genova goes where few authors dare, and mines a compelling and beautifully written story about finding peace, wisdom and human connection. While Sarah Nickerson's condition is rare, her journey is universal. " --Lynn Kiele Bonasia, author of Summer Shift 'A sentimental but compelling read that reminds us that appreciating health is a no-brainer' The Lady 22/3 'Insightful ... a stark reminder of the fine line that separates everyday life from disaster' Daily Mail

“3/4 stars”

I enjoyed this book and can relate it to Jodi Picoult because it follows a storyline typical of her.
