What Alice Forgot, by Liane Moriarty

(Mine was not an audio book; it was a paperback, but looks like this.)

An amazing book dealing with a familiar subject, amnesia, in a new way. Alice was exercising at the gym and fell, hitting her head on the hard tile floor. When she woke, ten years of her life had been erased from her memory. The ten years during which her three children were born and her marriage fell apart. How does she begin to deal with a new life that she does not even recognize? A fascinating story, kept me interested and eager to see what happens.

I thought this might be a sequel (although written by another author) of Still Alice, by Lisa Genova. Strange that it's another woman named Alice, in a different country, of a different age, with amnesia instead of dementia - but an Alice with a memory deficiency.
