Left Neglected by Lisa Genova (2011)

leftneglectedYou might recognize Lisa Genova from her blockbuster book (and movie) Still Alice. But you’d be remiss to skip Left Neglected, a fascinating and compelling story about a woman forced to reexamine her life following a car accident. 38-year-old Sarah leads a high octane life, juggling an 80 hour workweek with her family (husband and three kids). When a traumatic brain injury makes her unaware of everything on the left side, Sarah must rehabilitate her brain and body while reassessing her priorities.

A thought-provoking read and a great choice for your next book club.
