When Jo Harding falls down the stairs at home, she wakes up in hospital with partial amnesia - she's lost a whole year of memories. A lot can happen in a year. Was Jo having an affair? Lying to her family? Starting a new life? She can't remember what she did - or what happened the night she fell. But she's beginning to realise she might not be as good a wife and mother as she thought.

I think it was incorrectly filed as psychological thriller. it was a bit like listening to a very drawn out episode of Eastenders. the author seemed preoccupied with wide smiles and generous mouths as these descriptions occur over and over and over again. the only twist was that there wasn't one.
